MS16-130: Security Update for Microsoft Windows (3199172)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing a security update or security
rollup. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the
Windows image file handling functionality due to
improper handling of image files. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by
convincing a user to open a specially crafted image file
from a web page or email message, resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code in the context of the
current user. (CVE-2016-7212)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in
Windows Input Method Editor (IME) due to improper
loading of DLL files. A local attacker can exploit this,
via a specially crafted application, to elevate
privileges. (CVE-2016-7221)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in
Windows Task Scheduler due to improper handling of UNC
paths. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this vulnerability by scheduling a new task with a
specially crafted UNC path, resulting in the execution
of arbitrary code with elevated system privileges.
(CVE-2016-7222)
