The remote Windows kernel is affected by multiple remote code
The remote host is running a version of the Windows kernel that is
affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities :
- Due to improper validation in input passed from user
mode through the kernel component of GDI, an attacker
can cause a denial of service condition or may be able
to execute arbitrary code in kernel mode.
- A flaw in the way the Windows kernel-mode drivers
manages specific keyboard layouts could allow an
attacker to run arbitrary code in kernel mode.
