KB5023706: Windows 11 version 22H2 Security Update (March 2023)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 172529


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is missing security update 5023706. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities

- An out-of-bounds write vulnerability exists in TPM2.0's Module Library allowing writing of a 2-byte data past the end of TPM2.0 command in the CryptParameterDecryption routine. An attacker who can successfully exploit this vulnerability can lead to denial of service (crashing the TPM chip/process or rendering it unusable) and/or arbitrary code execution in the TPM context. (CVE-2023-1017)

- An out-of-bounds read vulnerability exists in TPM2.0's Module Library allowing a 2-byte read past the end of a TPM2.0 command in the CryptParameterDecryption routine. An attacker who can successfully exploit this vulnerability can read or access sensitive data stored in the TPM. (CVE-2023-1018)

- Remote Procedure Call Runtime Remote Code Execution Vulnerability (CVE-2023-21708, CVE-2023-23405, CVE-2023-24869, CVE-2023-24908)

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