The remote Windows host has a privilege escalation vulnerability.
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.
