Synopsis

The Windows kernel drivers on the remote host are affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host has the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in the way the Windows kernel-mode driver parses OpenType and TrueType fonts. (CVE-2013-3128, CVE-2013-3894)

- Multiple privilege escalation vulnerabilities exist in the Windows kernel-mode drivers. (CVE-2013-3879, CVE-2013-3880, CVE-2013-3880, CVE-2013-3888)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the Windows USB drivers. (CVE-2013-3200)

An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could read arbitrary amounts of kernel memory or gain elevated privileges.
