New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a driver that allows privilege escalation.

Description

The remote Windows host contains a version of the Ancillary Function Driver (afd.sys) that does not properly validate input before passing it from user mode to the kernel.

An attacker with local access to the affected system could exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in kernel mode and take complete control of the affected system.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, and 2008 R2.
