MS16-120: Security Update for Microsoft Graphics Component (3192884)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 94017

Synopsis

The remote 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 in the Windows GDI component due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, via a specially crafted application, to predict memory offsets in a call stack and bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) feature, resulting in the disclosure of memory contents.
(CVE-2016-3209, CVE-2016-3262, CVE-2016-3263)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Windows kernel due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this to elevate privileges and execute code in kernel mode.
(CVE-2016-3270)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Windows GDI component due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website or open a specially crafted file, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-3393)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Windows font library due to improper handling of embedded fonts. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website or open a specially crafted document file, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
(CVE-2016-3396)
- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Windows GDI component due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this to elevate privileges and execute code in kernel mode.
(CVE-2016-7182)
