Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows 8 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)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Microsoft Server Message Block 1.0 (SMBv1) server when handling certain requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet, to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-0267)

- 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 Windows OLE due to improper validation of user-supplied input.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website or to open a specially crafted file or email message, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2017-8487)

- 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)
