MS16-115: Security Update for Microsoft Windows PDF Library (3188733)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 93474


The remote Windows host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities in the Windows PDF Library due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted PDF file or visit a website containing specially crafted PDF content, to disclose sensitive information from memory.


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