This security update resolves one reported vulnerability in Windows. The vulnerability could allow information theft if an attacker logs on to a system and runs malware specifically crafted to exploit this vulnerability. An attacker must have valid logon credentials and be able to log on locally to exploit this vulnerability. This could potentially cause security compromise of the system, but only if the attacker already had valid logon credentials beforehand.
