Microsoft Security Advisory 4025685: Windows Vista (June 2017)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 100785

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 9.6

Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

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

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Microsoft Internet Explorer due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2017-0222)

- Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist in the Microsoft Server Message Block 1.0 (SMBv1) server when handling certain requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via a specially crafted packet, to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-0267, CVE-2017-0268, CVE-2017-0270, CVE-2017-0271, CVE-2017-0274, CVE-2017-0275, CVE-2017-0276)

- Multiple denial of service vulnerabilities exist in Microsoft Server Message Block (SMB) when handling a specially crafted request to the server. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via a crafted SMB request, to cause the system to stop responding. (CVE-2017-0269, CVE-2017-0273, CVE-2017-0280)

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in the Microsoft Server Message Block 1.0 (SMBv1) server when handling certain requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via a specially crafted packet, to execute arbitrary code on a target server. (CVE-2017-0272, CVE-2017-0277, CVE-2017-0278, CVE-2017-0279)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Windows due to improper handling of shortcuts. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to insert a removable drive containing a malicious shortcut and binary, to automatically execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2017-8464)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Windows Search functionality due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted SMB message, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-8543)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the GDI component due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted document or visit a specially crafted website, to disclose the contents of memory. (CVE-2017-8552)

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Vista.
