MS15-053: Vulnerabilities in JScript and VBScript Scripting Engines Could Allow Security Feature Bypass (3057263)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 83364


The remote Windows host is affected by security feature bypass vulnerabilities.


The JScript and/or VBScript scripting engines installed on the remote Windows host are affected by multiple ASLR security feature bypass vulnerabilities, which allow an attacker to more reliably predict the memory offsets of specific instructions in a given call stack. A remote attacker can exploit these along with another vulnerability to more reliably run arbitrary code.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2003, Vista, 2008, and 2008 R2.
