high Nessus Plugin ID 71316


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


The remote Windows host has the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple errors exist in the Windows kernel-mode drivers that could allow privilege escalation and arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-3899, CVE-2013-3902, CVE-2013-5058)

- An error exists in the way the Windows kernel-mode driver parses TrueType fonts that could allow denial of service attacks. (CVE-2013-3903)

- An error exists in the Windows audio port-class driver that could allow privilege escalation and arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-3907)

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