Microsoft: Windows SSH Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability


An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when Windows improperly handles Secure Socket Shell remote commands. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could run arbitrary code with elevated privileges. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would first have to log on to the system. An attacker could then run a specially crafted application that could exploit the vulnerability and take control of an affected system. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the Secure Socket Shell handles remote commands.
