High Nessus Plugin ID 90439

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 Windows Secondary Logon Service due to improper management of requests in memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to gain elevated privileges, allowing the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10.
