Description

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) when an attacker logs on to the target system using RDP and sends specially crafted data over the authenticated connection. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could execute code with elevated privileges. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.
