MS11-056: Vulnerabilities in Windows Client/Server Run-time Subsystem Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (2507938)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 55572
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.
