MS16-034: Security Update for Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers to Address Elevation of Privilege (3143145)

High Nessus Plugin ID 89756


The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple flaws in the Win32k kernel-mode driver due to improper handling of objects in memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via a specially crafted application, to elevate privileges, allowing the execution of arbitrary code in kernel mode.


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