High Nessus Plugin ID 88643

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7


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


The version of Microsoft Edge installed on the remote host is missing Cumulative Security Update 3134225. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due to improper handling of objects in memory. An attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-0060, CVE-2016-0061, CVE-2016-0062, CVE-2016-0084)

- A spoofing vulnerability exists due to improper parsing of HTTP responses. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted URL, to redirect a user to a malicious website. (CVE-2016-0077)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to improper handling of exceptions when dispatching certain window messages. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted website, to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) feature, resulting in the ability to predict memory offsets in a call stack. (CVE-2016-0080)


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10.
