Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by an elevation of privilege vulnerability.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by an elevation of privilege vulnerability in the Pragmatic General Multicast (PGM) protocol, installed with the MSMQ service, due to a race condition that can result in references being made to already freed memory. An local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to gain elevated privileges on the affected host.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 8, RT, 2012, 8.1, RT 8.1, 2012 R2, and 10.
