- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Microsoft SQL Analysis Services due to improper validation of the FILESTREAM path. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive database and file information. (CVE-2016-7252)
- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Microsoft SQL Server Engine due to improper checking by the SQL Server Agent of ACLs on atxcore.dll. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7253)
