MS KB982316: Elevation of Privilege Using Windows Service Isolation Bypass

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a privilege escalation vulnerability.

Description :

Windows Service Isolation can be bypassed on the remote host,
resulting in the elevation of privileges.

A local attacker could exploit this by leveraging the TAPI service to
execute code as SYSTEM.

A similar problem affects other Windows services that run as the
NetworkService user (e.g. IIS, SQL Server), though Nessus has not
checked for those issues.
