Serious vulnerabilities discovered in over 40 Windows drivers
Dozens of Windows device drivers from at least 20 major vendors are vulnerable to escalation of privilege attacks, say researchers from security firm Eclypsium. They say the flaw is down to lax code, and can allow software running under a user account to elevate its privileges to system level, seizing control of the machine. All the vulnerable drivers had been certified by Microsoft.
