MS KB2757760: Vulnerability in Internet Explorer Could Allow Remote Code Execution (deprecated)
High Nessus Plugin ID 62201
SynopsisThis plugin has been deprecated.
DescriptionThe remote host is missing the workaround referenced in KB 2757760 (Microsoft 'Fix it' 50939). This workaround mitigates a use-after-free vulnerability in Internet Explorer. Without this workaround enabled, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability by tricking a user into view a maliciously crafted web page, resulting in arbitrary code execution. This vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild.
This plugin has been deprecated due to the publication of MS12-063.
Microsoft has released patches that make the workarounds unnecessary. To check for the patches, use Nessus plugin ID 62223.
