Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist that are related to the handling of objects in memory.
A local attacker can exploit these, via a crafted application, to run arbitrary code in kernel mode.
(CVE-2015-6100, CVE-2015-6101)

- Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist due to a failure to properly initialize memory addresses. A local attacker can exploit these, via a specially crafted application, to bypass the Kernel Address Space Layout Randomization (KASLR) and retrieve the base address of the Kernel driver from a compromised process. (CVE-2015-6102, CVE-2015-6109)

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in the Adobe Type Manager Library due to improper handling of specially crafted fonts. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via a crafted document or web page, to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-6103, CVE-2015-6104)

- A security feature bypass vulnerability exists due to improper validation of permissions. A local attacker can exploit this to interact with the file system in an inappropriate manner to modify files, by using a crafted, low-integrity-level, user-mode application.
(CVE-2015-6113)

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 8, 2012, 8.1, 2012 R2, and 10.
