Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected 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 GDI component due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website or open a specially crafted document file, to disclose the contents of memory.
(CVE-2016-7257)

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in the Windows Graphics Component due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website or open a specially crafted document file, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-7272, CVE-2016-7273)

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.
