Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,

Windows Crypto driver running in kernel mode due to
improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker
can exploit this, via a specially crafted application,
to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-7219)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the
Windows installer due to improper sanitization of input,
leading to insecure library loading behavior. A local
attacker can exploit this to run arbitrary code with
elevated system privileges. (CVE-2016-7292)
