Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist in the Windows Graphics Device Interface (GDI) component due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, via a specially crafted application, to execute arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2017-0001, CVE-2017-0005, CVE-2017-0025, CVE-2017-0047)

- 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 these vulnerabilities, by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted web page or open a specially crafted document, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-0014, CVE-2017-0108)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Windows Graphics Device Interface (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 web page or open a specially crafted document, to disclose the contents of memory. (CVE-2017-0038)

- Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist in the Windows Graphics Device Interface (GDI) component due to improper handling of memory addresses. A local attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, via a specially crafted application, to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2017-0060, CVE-2017-0062, CVE-2017-0073)

- Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist in the Color Management Module (ICM32.dll) due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted web page, to disclose sensitive information and bypass usermode Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR). (CVE-2017-0061, CVE-2017-0063)
