Microsoft Windows does not adequately validate registry data read using the function RtlQueryRegistryValues(). By modifying an EUDC registry key value, a local user could execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.
On October 13th, VSR identified a vulnerability in the RDS protocol, as implemented in the Linux kernel. Because kernel functions responsible for copying data between kernel and user space failed to verify that a user-provided address actually resided in the user segment, a local attacker could issue specially crafted socket function calls to write abritrary values into kernel memory. By leveraging this capability, it is possible for unprivileged users to escalate privileges to root.
