VPR Score: 7.4

Synopsis

The remote 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 Windows Secure Kernel Mode due to improper handling of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to bypass virtual trust levels (VTL).

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10 and 2016.
