Vulnerability Information

Windows Crypto Driver Information Disclosure Vulnerability - CVE-2016-7219

An information disclosure vulnerability exists when a Windows Crypto driver 
running in kernel mode improperly handles objects in memory. An attacker who 
successfully exploited this vulnerability could obtain information to further
compromise the users system.

To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would have to log on to an affected
system and run a specially crafted application.

The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the Windows driver 
handles objects in memory.

Vulnerability

Windows Installer Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability - CVE-2016-7292

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the Windows Installer when 
the Windows Installer fails to properly sanitize input leading to an insecure
library loading behavior. To exploit the vulnerability, a locally 
authenticated attacker 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 security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting the input 
sanitization error to preclude unintended elevation.
