VPR Score: 7.4


The remote Windows host contains a kernel driver that is prone to a local privilege escalation attack.


Macrovision SafeDisc, a copy-protection application for Microsoft Windows, is installed on the remote host.

The 'SECDRV.SYS' driver included with the version of SafeDisc currently installed on the remote host enables a local user to gain SYSTEM privileges using a specially crafted argument to the METHOD_NEITHER IOCTL.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP and 2003.
