Security Updates for Windows Server 2008 (June 2018)

High Nessus Plugin ID 110501

Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing security updates. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when the
Windows kernel fails to properly handle objects in
memory. An attacker who successfully exploited this
vulnerability could run arbitrary code in kernel mode.
An attacker could then install programs; view, change,
or delete data; or create new accounts with full user
rights. (CVE-2018-8224)

- 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 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 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 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)

- 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)

Solution

Microsoft has released the following security updates to address this issue:
-KB4230467
-KB4234459
-KB4294413
