Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple privilege escalation
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple privilege escalation
vulnerabilities :

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists due to
Windows Registry Virtualization improperly allowing a
user to modify the virtual store of another user. A
local attacker, with a specially crafted application,
can exploit this vulnerability to take control of the
account of another user who is logged on to the affected
system. (CVE-2015-0073)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists due to
a failure to properly validate and enforce impersonation
levels. A local attacker, with a specially crafted
application, can exploit this vulnerability to bypass
user account checks. (CVE-2015-0075)
