Microsoft Windows RPC Marshalling Engine Vulnerability

-

Description


A vulnerability has been reported in Microsoft Windows, which can be exploited by malicious people to potentially compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due the RPC Marshalling Engine not updating its internal state correctly. This may result in a pointer being read from an incorrect location by sending a specially crafted RPC message.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

NOTE: According to Microsoft, no supported editions of Microsoft Windows are delivered with any RPC servers or clients that are subject to exploitation of this vulnerability. However, third-party applications using RPC may present a valid attack vector.


Solution:
Apply patches.
