MS15-095: Cumulative Security Update for Microsoft Edge (3089665)

high Nessus Plugin ID 85843
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.

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 3089665. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10.
