Description

Multiple vulnerabilities exist in Windows while validating reparse points being set by sandbox applications. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could run arbitrary code in the security context of the local system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.
