MS15-115: Security Update for Microsoft Windows to Address Remote Code Execution (3105864)
High Nessus Plugin ID 86822
SynopsisThe remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe 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.
- 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.
- 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.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 8, 2012, 8.1, 2012 R2, and 10.
