New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 8.9
SynopsisThe remote host is affected by a security feature bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a security feature bypass vulnerability in the Client-Server Run-time Subsystem (CSRSS) due to improper management of process tokens in memory. A local attacker can exploit this vulnerability, via a specially crafted application, to escalate privileges and execute arbitrary code as an administrator.
