Bulletin Title and Executive Summary

Maximum Severity Rating
and Vulnerability Impact

MS15-058

Vulnerabilities in SQL Server Could Allow Remote Code Execution (3065718) 
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft SQL Server. The most severe vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if an authenticated attacker runs a specially crafted query that is designed to execute a virtual function from a wrong address, leading to a function call to uninitialized memory. To exploit this vulnerability an attacker would need permissions to create or modify a database.

Important 
Remote Code Execution

MS15-065

Security Update for Internet Explorer (3076321) 
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted webpage using Internet Explorer. An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the current user. Customers whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights.

Critical 
Remote Code Execution

MS15-066

Vulnerability in VBScript Scripting Engine Could Allow Remote Code Execution (3072604) 
This security update resolves a vulnerability in the VBScript scripting engine in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user visits a specially crafted website. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. If the current user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

Critical 
Remote Code Execution

MS15-067

Vulnerability in RDP Could Allow Remote Code Execution (3073094) 
This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an attacker sends a specially crafted sequence of packets to a targeted system with Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) enabled. By default, RDP is not enabled on any Windows operating system. Systems that do not have RDP enabled are not at risk.

Critical 
Remote Code Execution

MS15-068

Vulnerabilities in Windows Hyper-V Could Allow Remote Code Execution (3072000) 
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution in a host context if a specially crafted application is run by an authenticated and privileged user on a guest virtual machine hosted by Hyper-V. An attacker must have valid logon credentials for a guest virtual machine to exploit this vulnerability.

Critical 
Remote Code Execution

MS15-069

Vulnerabilities in Windows Could Allow Remote Code Execution (3072631) 
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerabilities could allow Remote Code Execution if an attacker first places a specially crafted dynamic link library (DLL) file in the target user’s current working directory and then convinces the user to open an RTF file or to launch a program that is designed to load a trusted DLL file but instead loads the attacker’s specially crafted DLL file. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

Important 
Remote Code Execution

MS15-070

Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Could Allow Remote Code Execution (3072620) 
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted Microsoft Office file. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could run arbitrary code in the context of the current user. Customers whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights.

Important 
Remote Code Execution

MS15-071

Vulnerability in Netlogon Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3068457) 
This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker with access to a primary domain controller (PDC) on a target network runs a specially crafted application to establish a secure channel to the PDC as a backup domain controller (BDC).

Important 
Elevation of Privilege

MS15-072

Vulnerability in Windows Graphics Component Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3069392) 
This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow elevation of privilege if Windows Graphics component fails to properly process bitmap conversions. An authenticated attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could elevate privileges on a targeted system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full administrative rights. An attacker must first log on to the system to exploit this vulnerability.

Important 
Elevation of Privilege

MS15-073

Vulnerability in Windows Kernel-Mode Driver Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3070102) 
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerabilities could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker logs on to an affected system and runs a specially crafted application.

Important 
Elevation of Privilege

MS15-074

Vulnerability in Windows Installer Service Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3072630) 
This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow elevation of privilege if the Windows Installer service improperly runs custom action scripts. An attacker must first compromise a user who is logged on to the target system to exploit the vulnerability. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full administrative rights.

Important 
Elevation of Privilege

MS15-075

Vulnerabilities in OLE Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3072633) 
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerabilities could allow elevation of privilege if used in conjunction with another vulnerability that allows arbitrary code to be run. Once the other vulnerability has been exploited, an attacker could then exploit the vulnerabilities addressed in this bulletin to cause arbitrary code to run at a medium integrity level.

Important 
Elevation of Privilege

MS15-076

Vulnerability in Windows Remote Procedure Call Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3067505) 
This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability, which exists in Windows Remote Procedure Call (RPC) authentication, could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker logs on to an affected system and runs a specially crafted application. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of the affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

Important 
Elevation of Privilege

MS15-077

Vulnerability in ATM Font Driver Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3077657) 
This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker logs on to a target system and runs a specially crafted application. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could execute arbitrary code and take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

Important
