Windows 10 zero-day exploit code released online

Windows 10 zero-day exploit code released online (Malware and Vulnerabilities)

A security researcher has published today demo exploit code on GitHub for a Windows 10 zero-day vulnerability. LPE vulnerabilities can't be used to break into systems, but hackers can use them at later stages in their attacks to elevate their access on compromised hosts from low-privileged to admin-level accounts. When exploited, the vulnerability can elevate a hacker's low-privileged account to admin access, which, in turn, grants the intruder access over the entire system. Researcher also released a demo video of the LPE zero-day in action. The researcher who released this zero-day is named SandboxEscaper and has a reputation for releasing Windows zero-days online, without notifying Microsoft of these security flaws. - LPE in the Windows Error Reporting (WER) system
