A local user can elevate privileges.
A vulnerability exists because the ListBox control and the ComboBox
control both call a function, located in the User32.dll file, that
contains a buffer overrun. A local, interactive attacker could run a
program that sends a specially crafted Windows message to any
application that has implemented the ListBox control or the ComboBox
control, causing the application to take any action specified.
An attacker must have valid login credentials to exploit the
vulnerability. It can not be exploited remotely.
