A security issue has been reported in Microsoft Windows Server 2008, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose or manipulate certain data.
The security issue is caused due to the Failover Cluster Manager using insecure default permissions when adding disks to a shared cluster, which can be exploited by unauthorised users to access the administrative shares on the failover cluster disk.
The security issue is reported in Windows Server 2008 R2 for Itanium- and x64-based systems.
Solution: Apply the patches and check the permissions on existing cluster disk administrative shares.
