MS KB2934088: Vulnerability in Internet Explorer Could Allow Remote Code Execution

high Nessus Plugin ID 72605
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The remote host is missing one of the workarounds referenced in KB 2934088.

The remote Internet Explorer install is affected by a use after free vulnerability in the MSHTML CMarkup component. By exploiting this flaw, a remote, unauthenticated attacker could execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the privileges of the user running the affected application.


Apply the IE settings workarounds suggested by Microsoft in the advisory, or apply the MSHTML Shim workaround in the Microsoft 'Fix it' solution.
