High Nessus Plugin ID 70333

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 9


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


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.

Note that the update was re-offered for Windows 7 and 2008 R2 as of January 14, 2014.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 8, Windows RT, and 2012.
