high Nessus Plugin ID 65215
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: 6.7


The Windows kernel on the remote host is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability.


The remote host contains a flaw when Windows USB drivers improperly handle objects in memory. An attacker could exploit this issue to run arbitrary code in kernel mode to gain elevated privileges.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 8, and 2012.
