MS16-033: Security Update for Windows USB Mass Storage Class Driver to Address Elevation of Privilege (3143142)

High Nessus Plugin ID 89779


The remote host is affected by an elevation of privilege vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the Windows USB Mass Storage Class driver due to improper validation of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted USB device, to elevate privileges, allowing the execution of arbitrary code.


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