critical Nessus Plugin ID 101365

Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing security update 4025333 or cumulative update 4025336. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Windows Performance Monitor Console due to improper parsing of XML input that contains a reference to an external entity. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to create a Data Collector Set and import a specially crafted XML file, to disclose arbitrary files via an XML external entity (XXE) declaration. (CVE-2017-0170)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Windows Explorer due to improper handling of executable files and shares during rename operations. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted file, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2017-8463)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Microsoft Graphics component due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to run arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2017-8467)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Win32k due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-8486)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists in Microsoft Windows when handling Kerberos ticket exchanges due to a failure to prevent tampering with the SNAME field. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to bypass the Extended Protection for Authentication security feature. (CVE-2017-8495)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Microsoft Graphics component due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to run arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2017-8556)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Windows System Information Console due to improper parsing of XML input that contains a reference to an external entity. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted file, to disclose arbitrary files via an XML external entity (XXE) declaration.
(CVE-2017-8557)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Windows kernel due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to execute arbitrary code with elevated permissions. (CVE-2017-8561)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Windows due to improper handling of calls to Advanced Local Procedure Call (ALPC). An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this via a specially crafted application, to run processes in an elevated context.
(CVE-2017-8562)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Windows due to Kerberos falling back to NT LAN Manager (NTLM) Authentication Protocol as the default authentication protocol. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via an application that sends specially crafted traffic to a domain controller, to run processes in an elevated context. (CVE-2017-8563)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Windows kernel due to improper initialization of objects in memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to bypass Kernel Address Space Layout Randomization (KASLR) and disclose the base address of the kernel driver.
(CVE-2017-8564)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in PowerShell when handling a PSObject that wraps a CIM instance. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted script, to execute arbitrary code in a PowerShell remote session.
(CVE-2017-8565)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Microsoft Graphics component due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to run arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2017-8573)

- Multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist in the Microsoft Graphics Component due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit these, via a specially crafted application, to run arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2017-8577, CVE-2017-8578, CVE-2017-8580)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Windows due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to run arbitrary code in kernel mode.
(CVE-2017-8581)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the HTTP.sys server application component due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-8582)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in Windows Explorer that is triggered when Explorer attempts to open a non-existent file. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, to cause a user's system to stop responding. (CVE-2017-8587)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in WordPad due to improper parsing of specially crafted files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted file, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2017-8588)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Windows Search component due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending specially crafted messages to the Windows Search service, to elevate privileges and execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-8589)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Windows Common Log File System (CLFS) driver due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to run processes in an elevated context. (CVE-2017-8590)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists in Microsoft browsers due to improper handling of redirect requests.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, to bypass CORS redirect restrictions. (CVE-2017-8592)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in 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-2017-8594)

- A spoofing vulnerability exists in Microsoft browsers due to improper parsing of HTTP content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to click a specially crafted URL, to redirect the user to a malicious website.
(CVE-2017-8602)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Microsoft browsers in the JavaScript engines 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-2017-8606)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Microsoft browsers in the JavaScript engines 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-2017-8607)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Microsoft browsers in the JavaScript engines 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-2017-8608)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Internet Explorer in the VBScript engine 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-2017-8618)
