Windows Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability - CVE-2019-0731

oval:org.cisecurity:def:6582

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when Windows improperly handles calls to the LUAFV driver (luafv.sys). An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code in the security context of the local system. An attacker could then install programs; view change or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. 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 over an affected system. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how Windows handles calls to LUAFV.
