This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


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 :

- A race condition when creating certain types of kernel
threads may allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary
code in kernel mode and take complete control of the
affected system. (CVE-2010-1888)

- A double free vulnerability when the kernel initializes
objects while handling certain errors may allow a local
attacker to execute arbitrary code in kernel mode and
take complete control of the affected system.
(CVE-2010-1889)

- A failure to properly validate access control lists on
kernel objects may allow a local attacker to cause the
system to become unresponsive and automatically
restart. (CVE-2010-1890)
