The remote Windows host is affected by multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities due to improper handling of objects in memory by the Windows kernel. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by running a specially crafted application, resulting in an elevation of privileges.
