Medium Nessus Plugin ID 96390
SynopsisThe remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Microsoft Edge installed on the remote Windows host is missing Cumulative Security Update 3214288. It is, therefore, affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability due to improper enforcement of cross-domain policies with 'about:blank'. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, via specially crafted web content, to access information from one domain and inject it into another domain, resulting in an elevation of privileges.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
