Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Microsoft Edge. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can redirect the target user's browser to an arbitrary site. A remote user can gain elevated privileges. A remote user can bypass security controls on the target system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system. Microsoft Internet Explorer is affected.

A remote user can bypass Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) redirect restrictions on the target system [CVE-2018-8358].

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger an object memory handling error in the browser and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2018-8403].

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger an object memory handling error in the Chakra scripting engine and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2018-8266, CVE-2018-8380, CVE-2018-8381, CVE-2018-8390, CVE-2018-8359].

A remote user can exploit an audio request processing flaw in the WebAudio Library to view potentially sensitive information on the target system [CVE-2018-8370].

A remote user can create a specially crafted ActiveX control marked "safe for initialization" in an application or Microsoft Office document that hosts the related rendering engine that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error in the browser scripting engine and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2018-8372, CVE-2018-8385, CVE-2018-8355].

A remote user can create a URL that, when loaded by the target user, will redirect the target user's browser to an arbitrary site [CVE-2018-8383].

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML content that, when loaded by the target user, will spoof content in the target user's browser [CVE-2018-8388].

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML content that, when opened by the target user from a secure web site, will bypass cross-frame security controls and obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system [CVE-2018-8351].

A remote user can escape the sandbox on the target user's system [CVE-2018-8357].

Bruno Keith, dannywei of Tencent Security Xuanwu Lab, exp-sky (Kai Song) of Tencent Security Xuanwu Lab, Yuki Chen of Qihoo 360 Vulcan Team, Lokihardt of Google Project Zero, Qixun Zhao of Qihoo 360 Vulcan Team, James Lee @Windowsrcer of Kryptos Logic, Rafay Baloch, Michael Holman, Microsoft Chakra Core Team, Gareth Heyes of PortSwigger, Jihui Lu of Tencent KeenLab, Seonung Jang (@Seonunghardt) of Stealien, James Lee @Windowsrcer of Kryptos Logic, and Jun Kokatsu, Windows & Devices Group - Operating System Security Team reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can cause the target user's browser to be redirected to an arbitrary web site.

A remote user can gain elevated privileges on the target system.

A remote user can bypass security controls on the target system.

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.

Solution:   Microsoft has issued a fix for CVE-2018-8351, CVE-2018-8355, CVE-2018-8357, CVE-2018-8359, CVE-2018-8372, CVE-2018-8385, and CVE-2018-8403 for Microsoft Internet Explorer.
