MS16-097: Security Update for Microsoft Graphics Component (3177393)

High Nessus Plugin ID 92843


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the Graphics component due to improper handling of embedded fonts by the Windows font library. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, by convincing a user to visit a malicious website or open a specially crafted document file, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user.


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