Microsoft: Windows Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability

Description

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in the way that the dssvc.dll handles file creation allowing for a file overwrite or creation in a secured location. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could execute code with elevated permissions.
