Security Update for Microsoft Graphics Component (3164036)

Published: June 14, 2016 | Updated: June 15, 2016

Version: 1.1

Executive Summary

This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow elevation of privilege if a user opens a specially crafted application.

This security update is rated Important for all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. For more information, see the Affected Software and Vulnerability Severity Ratings section.

The security update addresses the vulnerabilities by correcting how:

  • The Windows Graphics Component (GDI32.dll) handles objects in memory
  • The Windows kernel-mode driver (Win32k.sys) handles objects in memory and helps to prevent unintended elevation of privilege from user-mode
  • The Adobe Type Manager Font Driver (ATMFD.dll) handles objects in memory

For more information about the vulnerabilities, see the Vulnerability Information section.

For more information about this update, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 3164036.

Vulnerability Information

Windows Graphics Component Information Disclosure Vulnerability – CVE-2016-3216

An information disclosure vulnerability exists when the Windows Graphics Component (GDI32.dll) fails to properly handle objects in memory, allowing an attacker to retrieve information that could lead to an Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) bypass. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could cause an information disclosure to bypass the ASLR security feature that protects users from a broad class of vulnerabilities.

The security feature bypass itself does not allow arbitrary code execution. However, an attacker could use the ASLR bypass vulnerability in conjunction with another vulnerability, such as a remote code execution vulnerability, that could take advantage of the ASLR bypass to run arbitrary code.

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker could convince a use to run a specially crafted application. The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the Windows Graphics Component handles addresses in memory.

The following table contains links to the standard entry for each vulnerability in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list:

Vulnerability title CVE number Publicly disclosed Exploited
Windows Graphics Component Information Disclosure Vulnerability CVE-2016-3216 No No

Mitigating Factors

Microsoft has not identified any mitigating factors for this vulnerability.

Workarounds

Microsoft has identified the following workaround for this vulnerability.

  • Do not open EMF files from untrusted sources

Win32k Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability – CVE-2016-3219

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when the Windows improperly handles objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run processes in an elevated context.

In a local attack scenario, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability by running a specially crafted application to take control of the affected system. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the Windows kernel-mode driver handles objects in memory and by helping to prevent unintended elevation of privilege from user-mode.

The following table contains links to the standard entry for each vulnerability in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list:

Vulnerability title CVE number Publicly disclosed Exploited
Win32k Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability CVE-2016-3219 No No

Mitigating Factors

Microsoft has not identified any mitigating factors for these vulnerabilities.

Workarounds

Microsoft has not identified any workarounds for this vulnerability.

ATMFD.dll Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability – CVE-2016-3220

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Adobe Type Manager Font Driver (ATMFD.dll) when it fails to properly handle objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could execute arbitrary code and 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.

To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would first have to log on to a target system and then run a specially crafted application. The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how ATMFD.dll handles objects in memory.

The following table contains links to the standard entry for each vulnerability in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list:

Vulnerability title CVE number Publicly disclosed Exploited
ATMFD.dll Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability CVE-2016-3220 No No

Mitigating Factors

Microsoft has not identified any mitigating factors for this vulnerability.

Workarounds

Microsoft has not identified any workarounds for this vulnerability.
