Researchers have discovered a security flaw in 40 kernel drivers which could allow bad actors to take higher level control of Windows systems.
"The design flaw surfaces when signed drivers provide functionality which can be misused by userspace applications to perform arbitrary read/write of these sensitive resources without any restriction or checks from Microsoft,"
