- An error in the 'MPC::HTML::UrlUnescapeW()' function within the Help and
Support Center application (helpctr.exe) that does not properly check the
return code of 'MPC::HexToNum()' when escaping URLs, which could allow
attackers to bypass whitelist restrictions and invoke arbitrary help files.
- An input validation error in the 'GetServerName()' function in the
'C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\System\sysinfo\commonFunc.js' script invoked via
'ShowServerName()' in 'C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\System\sysinfo\sysinfomain.htm',
