KB4520011: Windows 10 October 2019 Security Update

High Nessus Plugin ID 129726

Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing security update 4520011.
It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- 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-2019-1343, CVE-2019-1346, CVE-2019-1347)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Microsoft Windows Setup when it does not properly handle privileges. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run processes in an elevated context. An attacker could then install programs; view, change or delete data. (CVE-2019-1316)

- A spoofing vulnerability exists when Microsoft Browsers improperly handle browser cookies. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could trick a browser into overwriting a secure cookie with an insecure cookie. The insecure cookie could serve as a pivot to chain an attack with other vulnerabilities in web services. (CVE-2019-1357)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists when the Windows Jet Database Engine improperly handles objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could execute arbitrary code on a victim system. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by enticing a victim to open a specially crafted file. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting the way the Windows Jet Database Engine handles objects in memory. (CVE-2019-1358, CVE-2019-1359)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists when Windows improperly handles hard links. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could cause a target system to stop responding. (CVE-2019-1317)

- 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-2019-1371)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the way that the Windows Code Integrity Module handles objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could obtain information to further compromise the users system. (CVE-2019-1344)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists when the Windows Imaging API improperly handles objects in memory. The vulnerability could corrupt memory in a way that enables an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2019-1311)

- 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-2019-1334)

- A spoofing vulnerability exists when Transport Layer Security (TLS) accesses non- Extended Master Secret (EMS) sessions. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability may gain access to unauthorized information. (CVE-2019-1318)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when Windows Error Reporting manager improperly handles a process crash. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could delete a targeted file leading to an elevated status. (CVE-2019-1342)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that the VBScript engine handles 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-2019-1238)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) when an attacker connects to the target system using RDP and sends specially crafted requests. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could cause the RDP service on the target system to stop responding. (CVE-2019-1326)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Windows Remote Desktop Client when a user connects to a malicious server. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could execute arbitrary code on the computer of the connecting client. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.
(CVE-2019-1333)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Windows redirected drive buffering system (rdbss.sys) when the operating system improperly handles specific local calls within Windows 7 for 32-bit systems. When this vulnerability is exploited within other versions of Windows it can cause a denial of service, but not an elevation of privilege. (CVE-2019-1325)

- A tampering vulnerability exists in Microsoft Windows when a man-in-the-middle attacker is able to successfully bypass the NTLM MIC (Message Integrity Check) protection. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the ability to downgrade NTLM security features. (CVE-2019-1166)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when Windows Error Reporting manager improperly handles hard links. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could overwrite a targeted file leading to an elevated status. (CVE-2019-1315, CVE-2019-1339)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists when the Microsoft XML Core Services MSXML parser processes user input. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could run malicious code remotely to take control of the users system. (CVE-2019-1060)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Windows Error Reporting (WER) when WER handles and executes files. The vulnerability could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker can successfully exploit it.
An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain greater access to sensitive information and system functionality. (CVE-2019-1319)

- A spoofing vulnerability exists when Microsoft Browsers does not properly parse HTTP content. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could impersonate a user request by crafting HTTP queries. The specially crafted website could either spoof content or serve as a pivot to chain an attack with other vulnerabilities in web services. (CVE-2019-0608)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when umpo.dll of the Power Service, improperly handles a Registry Restore Key function. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could delete a targeted registry key leading to an elevated status.
(CVE-2019-1341)
