MS16-096: Cumulative Security Update for Microsoft Edge (3177358)

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
4 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C) August 09, 2016 August 09, 2016 March 21, 2018

Description

Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist when Microsoft Edge improperly accesses objects in memory. The vulnerabilities could corrupt memory in a way that enables an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the current user. If the current user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker could take control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.
