VPR Score: 1.4


The remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in the Windows Secure Kernel Mode component due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a crafted application, to disclose sensitive information from memory.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10.
