Description

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Windows Text Service Framework (TSF) when the TSF server process does not validate the source of input or commands it receives. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could inject commands or read input sent through a malicious Input Method Editor (IME). This only affects systems that have installed an IME. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would first have to log on to the system. An attacker could then run a specially crafted application that could exploit the vulnerability and take control of an affected system. The security update addresses this vulnerability by correcting how the TSF server and client validate input from each other.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
