        No fix yet.

        An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when the Windows Print Spooler service improperly allows arbitrary writing to the file system. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code with elevated system privileges. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

        To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would have to log on to an affected system and run a specially crafted script or application.

        Hardly an issue if you have to log onto the system first. If you already have a server logon the fences are very low.

        cheers, Paul
