high Nessus Plugin ID 94636
New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 9.5

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 :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Windows kernel that allows a local attacker, via a specially crafted application, to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) feature and retrieve the memory address of a kernel object. (CVE-2016-7214)

- Multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist in the Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit these, via a specially crafted application, to execute arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2016-7215, CVE-2016-7246, CVE-2016-7255)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the bowser.sys kernel-mode driver due to improper handling objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-7218)

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 2012, 8.1, RT 8.1, 2012 R2, 10, and 2016.
