Microsoft: Windows Elevation Of Privilege Vulnerability


An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Windows 10 version 1809 when installed from physical media (USB, DVD, etc.) with the keep nothing option selected during installation. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability could allow an attacker to gain local access to an affected system. To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would need physical access to the console of the affected system. The update addresses the vulnerability by changing built-in account behavior after the setup process completes.
