Intel Chipset Device Software < 10.1.19444.8378 Escalation of Privilege

high Nessus Plugin ID 186475


A driver management application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by an escalation of privilege vulnerability.


The version of Intel Chipset Device Software installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 10.1.19444.8378. It is, therefore, affected by an escalation of privilege vulnerability. Due to an uncontrolled search path element, an authenticated, local attacker can elevate their privileges.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Intel Chipset Device Software version 10.1.19444.8378 or later.
