MS15-061: Vulnerabilities in Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3057839)

high Nessus Plugin ID 84059
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.

Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper handling of buffer elements. A local attacker can exploit this vulnerability to request the contents of specific memory addresses. (CVE-2015-1719)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Windows kernel-mode driver due to a user-after-free error. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to run a specially crafted application, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2015-1720)

- A elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Windows kernel-mode driver due to a NULL pointer dereference flaw. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to run a specially crafted application, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2015-1721)

- Multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist in the Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, with a specially crafted application, to escalate privileges to full administrative rights.
(CVE-2015-1722, CVE-2015-1723, CVE-2015-1724, CVE-2015-1726)

- Multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist in the Windows kernel-mode driver due to improperly validated user-supplied input. A local attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, with a specially crafted application, to escalate privileges to full administrative rights. (CVE-2015-1725, CVE-2015-1727)

- Multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist in the Windows kernel-mode driver due a failure to properly free memory. A local attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, with a specially crafted application, to execute arbitrary code in the context of another user. (CVE-2015-1725, CVE-2015-1727)

Solution

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