Synopsis

The remote Windows host has a browser plugin installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing KB3188128. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple security bypass vulnerabilities exist that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-4271, CVE-2016-4277, CVE-2016-4278)

- Multiple use-after-free errors exist that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4272, CVE-2016-4279, CVE-2016-6921, CVE-2016-6923, CVE-2016-6925, CVE-2016-6926, CVE-2016-6927, CVE-2016-6929, CVE-2016-6930, CVE-2016-6931, CVE-2016-6932)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4274, CVE-2016-4275, CVE-2016-4276, CVE-2016-4280, CVE-2016-4281, CVE-2016-4282, CVE-2016-4283, CVE-2016-4284, CVE-2016-4285, CVE-2016-6922, CVE-2016-6924)

- An integer overflow condition exists that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4287)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

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