Synopsis :

The Windows kernel is affected by several vulnerabilities that could
allow escalation of privileges.

Description :

The remote Windows host is running a version of the Windows kernel
that is affected by one or more of the following vulnerabilities :

- Improper validation of changes in certain kernel
objects may allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary
code in kernel mode and take complete control of the
affected system. (CVE-2010-0484)

- Improper validation of parameters when creating a new
window may allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary
code in kernel mode and take complete control of the
affected system. (CVE-2010-0485)

- A vulnerability that arises in the way Windows provides
glyph outline information to applications may allow a
local attacker to execute arbitrary code in kernel mode
and take complete control of the affected system.
