High Nessus Plugin ID 42439
SynopsisThe remote Windows kernel is affected by remote privilege escalation vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote host contains a version of the Windows kernel that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A NULL pointer dereferencing vulnerability allowing a local user to elevate his privileges (CVE-2009-1127)
- Insufficient validation of certain input passed to GDI from user mode allows a local user to run arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2009-2513)
- A parsing vulnerability when decoding a specially crafted Embedded OpenType (EOT) font may allow a remote user to execute arbitrary code on the remote host by luring a user of the remote host into viewing a web page containing such a malformed font. (CVE-2009-2514)
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista and 2008.
