    VirtualBox Guest Additions VBoxGuest.sys Privilege Escalation

    A vulnerability within the VBoxGuest driver allows an attacker to inject memory they control into an arbitrary location they define. This can be used by an attacker to overwrite HalDispatchTable+0x4 and execute arbitrary code by subsequently calling NtQueryIntervalProfile on Windows XP SP3 systems. This has been tested with VBoxGuest Additions up to 4.3.10r93012.
