MS15-092: Vulnerabilities in .NET Framework Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3086251)

high Nessus Plugin ID 85331
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 version of the .NET Framework installed on the remote host is affected by multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities.


The version of Microsoft .NET Framework installed on the remote host is affected by multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities due to the RyuJIT compiler not properly optimizing certain parameters, resulting in a code generation error. A remote attacker, by convincing a user to run a malicious .NET application, can exploit these vulnerabilities to gain elevated privileges and take control of the affected system.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for .NET Framework 4.6.
