Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Microsoft Internet Explorer. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can gain elevated privileges. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2016-3331, CVE-2016-3383, CVE-2016-3384].

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a object memory handling error in the Scripting Engine and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2016-3382, CVE-2016-3385, CVE-2016-3390].

The browser does not properly secure private namespace [CVE-2016-3387, CVE-2016-3388]. A remote user that can exploit an independent vulnerability can then gain elevated permissions on the target namespace directory and gain elevated privileges on the target system.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a object memory handling error and view potentially sensitive information on the target system [CVE-2016-3267].

The browser leaves authentication credentials in memory [CVE-2016-3391]. A user that can obtain a memory dump of the browser process can obtain the credentials.
