MS16-062: Security Update for Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers (3158222)

High Nessus Plugin ID 91012

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple privilege escalation vulnerabilities exist in the Windows kernel-mode driver due to a failure to properly handle objects in memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted application, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0171, CVE-2016-0173, CVE-2016-0174, CVE-2016-0196)

- A security feature bypass vulnerability exists in the Windows kernel. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted application, to bypass the Kernel Address Space Layout Randomization (KASLR) feature and retrieve the memory address of a kernel object. (CVE-2016-0175)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the DirectX Graphics kernel subsystem due to a failure to properly handle objects in memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted application, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0176)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the DirectX Graphics kernel subsystem due to a failure to correctly map kernel memory and to handle objects in memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted application, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0197)

Solution

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