MS09-025: Vulnerabilities in Windows Kernel Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (968537)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows kernel is affected by local privilege escalation
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host contains a version of the Windows kernel that is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A failure of the Windows kernel to properly validate
changes in certain kernel objects allows a local user
to run arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2009-1123)

- Insufficient validation of certain pointers passed from
user mode allows a local user to run arbitrary code in
kernel mode. (CVE-2009-1124)

- A failure to properly validate an argument passed to a
Windows kernel system call allows a local user to run
arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2009-1125)

- Improper validation of input passed from user mode to
the kernel when editing a specific desktop parameter
allows a local user to run arbitrary code in kernel
mode. (CVE-2009-1126)
