Description

The vulnerability allows an adjacent attacker to gain elevated privileges on the target system.

The weakness exists due to improper privileges control. An adjacent attacker can trigger a p2m error checking flaw in the Populate on Demand (PoD) code and gain write access to freed memory and gain elevated privileges on the host system.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
