KB4284846: Windows Server 2012 June 2018 Security Update

High Nessus Plugin ID 110488

Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing security update 4284846
or cumulative update 4284855. It is, therefore, affected by
multiple vulnerabilities :

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when the
(Human Interface Device) HID Parser Library driver
improperly handles objects in memory. An attacker who
successfully exploited this vulnerability could run
processes in an elevated context. (CVE-2018-8169)

- A memory corruption vulnerability exists when Windows
Media Foundation improperly handles objects in memory.
An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability
could install programs; view, change, or delete data; or
create new accounts with full user rights. There are
multiple ways an attacker could exploit the
vulnerability, such as by convincing a user to open a
specially crafted document, or by convincing a user to
visit a malicious webpage. The security update addresses
the vulnerability by correcting how Windows Media
Foundation handles objects in memory. (CVE-2018-8251)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Windows
Domain Name System (DNS) DNSAPI.dll when it fails to
properly handle DNS responses. An attacker who
successfully exploited the vulnerability could run
arbitrary code in the context of the Local System
Account. (CVE-2018-8225)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists when Windows
improperly handles objects in memory. An attacker who
successfully exploited the vulnerability could cause a
target system to stop responding. (CVE-2018-8205)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way
that the scripting engine handles objects in memory in
Internet Explorer. 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-2018-8267)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists when
Windows improperly handles objects in memory. An
attacker who successfully exploited these
vulnerabilities could take control of an affected
system. (CVE-2018-8210)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists when
Internet Explorer improperly accesses objects in memory.
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-2018-0978)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the way that
the Windows Code Integrity Module performs hashing. An
attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability
could cause a system to stop responding. Note that the
denial of service condition would not allow an attacker
to execute code or to elevate user privileges. However,
the denial of service condition could prevent authorized
users from using system resources. An attacker could
host a specially crafted file in a website or SMB share.
The attacker could also take advantage of compromised
websites, or websites that accept or host user-provided
content or advertisements, by adding specially crafted
content that could exploit the vulnerability. However,
in all cases an attacker would have no way to force
users to view the attacker-controlled content. Instead,
an attacker would have to convince users to take action,
typically via an enticement in email or instant message,
or by getting them to open an email attachment. The
security update addresses the vulnerability by modifying
how the Code Integrity Module performs hashing.
(CVE-2018-1040)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when NTFS
improperly checks access. An attacker who successfully
exploited this vulnerability could run processes in an
elevated context. (CVE-2018-1036)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists when the
Windows kernel improperly handles objects in memory. An
attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability
could obtain information to further compromise the users
system. (CVE-2018-8207)

Solution

Apply Security Only update KB4284846 or Cumulative Update KB4284855.
