Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Microsoft Edge installed on the remote host is missing Cumulative Security Update 3081436. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist due to improper access to objects in memory resulting from insufficient validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker, using a specially crafted website, can exploit these issues to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2015-2441, CVE-2015-2442, CVE-2015-2446)

- A security feature bypass vulnerability exists due to a failure to use Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR). An attacker can exploit this to predict memory offsets in a call stack. (CVE-2015-2449)

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10.
