Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is missing an update to wireless mouse input

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing an update to the wireless mouse
input filtering functionality. The missing update enhances security
by filtering out QWERTY key packets in keystroke communications issued
when receiving communication from USB wireless dongles. The update
resolves a vulnerability that allows a local attacker in the physical
proximity of the wireless mouse range to inject keyboard HID packets
into Microsoft wireless mouse devices through the use of USB dongles.
