medium Nessus Plugin ID 84741
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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.6


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities.


Multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist in Microsoft Windows OLE due to a failure to properly validate user input. An attacker can exploit these, in conjunction with other vulnerabilities, to execute arbitrary code on an affected system with the permissions of the current user.


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