Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Internet Explorer installed on the remote host is missing Cumulative Security Update 3082442. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website.

Note that the majority of the vulnerabilities addressed by Cumulative Security Update 3082442 are mitigated by the Enhanced Security Configuration (ESC) mode which is enabled by default on Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, and 2012 R2.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Internet Explorer 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11.
