MS16-089: Security Update for Windows Secure Kernel Mode (3170050)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 92020


The remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in the Windows Secure Kernel Mode due to improper handling of objects in memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted application, to disclose sensitive information on the target host.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10.
