New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

win32k.sys in the kernel-mode drivers in Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and Server 2008 R2 SP1 does not properly consider thread-owned objects during the processing of window handles, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted application, aka "Win32k Window Handle Vulnerability."
