MS15-107: Cumulative Security Update for Microsoft Edge (3096448)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 86372


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


The version of Microsoft Edge installed on the remote Windows host is missing Cumulative Security Update 3096448. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to improper handling of objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted website, to disclose arbitrary memory content.

- A cross-site scripting filter bypass vulnerability exists due to improper disabling of an HTML attribute in otherwise appropriately filtered HTTP response data. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a website containing specially crafted content, resulting in the execution of arbitrary script code in the wrong security context.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10.
