Description

The remote Windows host is affected by a security feature bypass vulnerability due to a failure to properly validate memory addresses by the Windows kernel. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw, via a specially crafted application, to bypass the Kernel Address Space Layout Randomization (KASLR), resulting in the disclosure of the base address of the Cryptography Next Generation (CNG) kernel-mode driver (cng.sys).
