Vulnerability in .NET Framework Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (2958732)

Published Date: May 13, 2014

Version: 1.0

General Information

Executive Summary

This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft 
.NET Framework. The vulnerability could allow elevation of privilege if an 
unauthenticated attacker sends specially crafted data to an affected 
workstation or server that uses .NET Remoting. .NET Remoting is not widely 
used by applications; only custom applications that have been specifically 
designed to use .NET Remoting would expose a system to the vulnerability.

This security update is rated Important for Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 
Service Pack 1, Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2, Microsoft .NET 
Framework 3.5, Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1, Microsoft .NET Framework 4, 
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5, and Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1 on affected 
releases of Microsoft Windows. 

The security update addresses the vulnerability by helping to ensure that 
.NET Framework properly enforces security controls for application memory.
