The Internet Explorer installation on the remote host is missing security updates. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the way that affected Microsoft browsers handle cross-origin requests. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could determine the origin of all of the web pages in the affected browser. (CVE-2020-0706)

  • A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that the scripting engine handles objects in memory in Internet Explorer. The vulnerability could corrupt memory in such a way that an attacker could execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user.
    (CVE-2020-0673, CVE-2020-0674)
