The researcher SandboxEscaper has again posted a zero-day vulnerability for the Windows operating system. The new flaw pertains to local privilege escalation (LPE) and a proof of concept video has also been posted demonstrating how it works. While the exploit isn't of the sort that enables an attacker to gain access to your computer, it does demo how one could, at a later stage, gain administrator-level system privileges. If an intruder finds a way to get into your system, this LPE exploit can be used to gain access over the complete system. As the flaw is said to be a zero-day vulnerability, there’s a good chance threat actors are already in action to use it for nefarious purposes.
