MS15-075: Vulnerabilities in OLE Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3072633)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 84741
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 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.
