MS10-069: Vulnerability in Windows Client/Server Runtime Subsystem Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (2121546)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 49227

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

Users can elevate their privileges on the remote host.

Description

The remote host allows elevation of privileges in its Windows Client/Server run-time subsystem (CSRSS) because of the way CSRSS assigns memory-specific user transactions. An attacker might exploit this to run arbitrary code in the security context of the local system.

Solution

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