New Windows zero-day vulnerability POC

A security researcher going by the name of SandboxEscaper has published online a new proof-of-concept (POC) for a new zero-day vulnerability that impacts Windows systems.

According to a ZDNet report, the vulnerability impacts ReadFile, a Windows operating system function used for reading data from files and I/O device streams.

“Researchers also said this is also another elevation of privilege (EoP), a vulnerability that allows a user to gain access to functions and permissions available to higher user groups,” ZDNet noted.
