Windows Information Disclosure Vulnerability - CVE-2019-0838

oval:org.cisecurity:def:6597

An information disclosure vulnerability exists when Windows Task Scheduler improperly discloses credentials to Windows Credential Manager. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could obtain information to further compromise the user’s 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. The security update addresses the vulnerability by changing how Task Scheduler handles credentials.
