Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

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

- Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist due to improper parsing of .pdf files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to open a specially crafted .pdf file, resulting in the disclosure of sensitive information in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-3201, CVE-2016-3215)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to improper parsing of .pdf files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to open a specially crafted .pdf file, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-3203)

Solution

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