Description

The remote Windows host is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability due to the Netlogon service improperly establishing a communications channel to a primary domain controller (PDC). An attacker, with access to the PDC, can exploit this by using a crafted application to create a secure channel to the PDC as a backup domain controller (BDC), possibly allowing access to sensitive credential information.

Note that this vulnerability only affects a server if it is configured as a domain controller.
