Description

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by an elevation of privilege vulnerability in the Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper handling of objects in memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to execute arbitrary code in kernel mode.
