The remote Windows host is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability in the Microsoft Remote Procedure Call (RPC) due to incorrectly allowing DCE/RPC connection reflection. A remote, authenticated attacker can exploit this vulnerability, with a specially crafted application, to elevate privileges.
