MS10-100: Vulnerability in Consent User Interface Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (2442962)

High Nessus Plugin ID 51172


A Windows component on the remote host is affected by a vulnerability that could allow escalation of privileges.


The Consent User Interface (UI) component of the remote Windows host does not properly process a registry key that has been set to a specific value.

An attacker who can log on locally to the affected system and has the 'Impersonate a client after authentication' user right (SeImpersonatePrivilege) can exploit this to run arbitrary code with LocalSystem privileges.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Vista, 2008, 7, and 2008 R2.
