high Nessus Plugin ID 85322

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities in Windows Object Manager :

- A flaw exists in Windows Object Manager due to a failure to properly validate and enforce impersonation levels. A remote, authenticated attacker can exploit this vulnerability, via a specially crafted application, to bypass impersonation-level security, resulting in a privilege escalation. (CVE-2015-2428)

- A flaw exists in Windows Object Manager due to a failure to properly restrict certain registry interactions from within vulnerable sandboxed applications. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to open specially crafted file that invokes a vulnerable sandboxed application, to interact with the registry and escape the application sandbox, resulting in a privilege escalation. (CVE-2015-2429)

- A flaw exists in Windows Object Manager due to a failure to properly restrict certain filesystem interactions from within vulnerable sandboxed applications. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to open a specially crafted file that invokes a vulnerable sandboxed application, to interact with the filesystem and escape the application sandbox, resulting in a privilege escalation. (CVE-2015-2430)

Solution

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