DescriptionThe remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by an elevation of privilege vulnerability due to a lack of Kerberos authentication for certain calls over LDAP when processing group policy updates. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this vulnerability to create arbitrary group policies and grant a standard user elevated, administrative privileges.
