The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is missing multiple security updates released on 2017/12/12. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information vulnerability exists when Windows Media Player improperly discloses file information. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability could allow the attacker to test for the presence of files on disk.

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in RPC if the server has Routing and Remote Access enabled. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could execute code on the target system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists when the Windows its:// protocol handler unnecessarily sends traffic to a remote site in order to determine the zone of a provided URL. This could potentially result in the disclosure of sensitive information to a malicious site.
