MS15-133: Security Update for Windows PGM to Address Elevation of Privilege (3116130)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by an elevation of privilege
vulnerability.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by an elevation of privilege vulnerability in the
Pragmatic General Multicast (PGM) protocol, installed with the MSMQ
service, due to a race condition that can result in references being
made to already freed memory. An local attacker can exploit this, via
a specially crafted application, to gain elevated privileges on the
affected host.
