MS12-016: Vulnerabilities in .NET Framework and Microsoft Silverlight Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2651026)
High Nessus Plugin ID 57950
SynopsisThe .NET Framework install on the remote Windows host could allow arbitrary code execution.
DescriptionThe version of the .NET Framework installed on the remote host reportedly is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- The .NET Framework and Silverlight do not properly use unmanaged objects, which could allow a malicious .NET Framework application to access memory in an unsafe manner. (CVE-2012-0014)
- The .NET Framework does not properly calculate a buffer length when processing malicious input, which could lead to heap corruption. (CVE-2012-0015)
An attacker may be able to leverage these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code on the affected system if a user on it can be tricked into viewing a specially crafted web page using a web browser that can run XAML Browser Applications (XBAPs) or Silverlight applications.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.5.1, and 4 as well as Silverlight 4.
