Description

The remote Windows host is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability due to improper validation of the authorization of a caller's impersonation token when the caller's process uses SeAssignPrimaryTokenPrivilege. A local attacker, using a specially crafted program, can bypass the authorization check, resulting in an escalation of privileges.
