medium Nessus Plugin ID 55572
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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 7.4

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). An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to run arbitrary code in kernel mode. The attacker must have valid login credentials and be able to log on locally in order to exploit these vulnerabilities.

Solution

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