Vulnerability Information

Windows Diagnostics Hub Elevation of Privilege CVE-2016-7188

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Windows Diagnostics Hub
Standard Collector Service when the Windows Diagnostics Hub Standard Collector
Service fails to properly sanitize input that could lead to unsecure library 
loading behavior.

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would have to log on to an affected
system and run a specially crafted application. An attacker who successfully 
exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code with elevated system 
privileges. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete 
data; or create new accounts with full user rights. The update addresses the 
vulnerability by correcting an input sanitization error to preclude unintended
elevation of privilege.

The following table contains links to the standard entry for each 
vulnerability in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list:
