High Nessus Plugin ID 91002

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Microsoft Edge installed on the remote host is missing Cumulative Security Update 3155538. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in the Chakra JavaScript engine due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a crafted website or open a crafted document, to corrupt memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-0186, CVE-2016-0191, CVE-2016-0193)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to improper access of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a crafted website, to corrupt memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-0192)

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10.
