high Nessus Plugin ID 158702


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is missing security update 5011560 or cumulative update 5011560. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges.
(CVE-2022-23283, CVE-2022-23284, CVE-2022-23290, CVE-2022-23293, CVE-2022-23296, CVE-2022-23298, CVE-2022-23299, CVE-2022-24454, CVE-2022-24455, CVE-2022-24459)

- An information disclosure vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this to disclose potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2022-21977, CVE-2022-22010, CVE-2022-23281, CVE-2022-23297, CVE-2022-24503)

- A security feature bypass vulnerability exists. An attacker can exploit this and bypass the security feature and perform unauthorized actions compromising the integrity of the system/application.

- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this issue to cause the affected component to deny system or application services. (CVE-2022-21973, CVE-2022-21975, CVE-2022-23253)

- A remote code execution vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this to bypass authentication and execute unauthorized arbitrary commands. (CVE-2022-21990, CVE-2022-23285, CVE-2022-23294)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
