The Microsoft Visual Studio Products are missing security updates. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

  • .NET DLL Hijacking Remote Code Execution Vulnerability. (CVE-2023-28260)

  • Visual Studio Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability. (CVE-2023-28262)

  • Visual Studio Information Disclosure Vulnerability. (CVE-2023-28263)

  • Visual Studio Remote Code Execution Vulnerability. (CVE-2023-28296)

  • Visual Studio Spoofing Vulnerability. (CVE-2023-28299)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
