Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by a flaw in the Microsoft Web Distributed
Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) client due to improper validation of
user-supplied input. A local attacker can exploit this, via a
specially crafted application, to execute arbitrary code with elevated
privileges.
