high Nessus Plugin ID 104892

Synopsis

The Internet Explorer installation on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The Internet Explorer installation on the remote host is missing security updates. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists when Internet Explorer improperly accesses objects in memory.
This vulnerability could corrupt memory in such a way that an attacker could execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2017-8519, CVE-2017-8547)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way JavaScript engines render when handling objects in memory in Microsoft browsers. The vulnerability could corrupt memory in such a way that an attacker could execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. (CVE-2017-8517, CVE-2017-8522, CVE-2017-8524)

Solution

Microsoft has released security updates for the affected versions of Internet Explorer.
