CVE-2022-30160 Windows Advanced Local Procedure Call Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability.

CVE-2022-30160 Windows Advanced Local Procedure Call Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability.

This is a remote code execution vulnerability. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending malicious request to an affected system.

The Microsoft Windows operating system supports the elevation of privilege for a process by using a Windows Advanced Local Procedure Call (ALPC).

ALPC is a Windows API that supports the launching of programs at a specified location in the operating system. It is often used for authentication, logging, and other administrative tasks.

ALPC provides a restricted set of functions that can be used by a process to perform administrative tasks. For example, a web server process in Windows can use ALPC to authenticate users and perform other administrative tasks.

It is possible for an attacker to exploit ALPC to elevate privileges and perform administrative tasks. An attacker can send malicious request to an affected system and exploit this vulnerability to run arbitrary code in the context of the affected system.

We recommend installing the updates immediately.
