MS13-101: Vulnerabilities in Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (2880430)

High Nessus Plugin ID 71316

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: 5.9


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.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 8, 2012, 8.1, and 2012 R2.
