New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host contains a flaw in the way that Windows handles asynchronous RPC requests, which can lead to elevation of privileges.
An attacker could exploit this issue to run arbitrary code and take complete control of an affected system.

Solution

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