The kernel in Microsoft Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 SP2, Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 SP2, R2, and R2 SP1, and Windows 7 Gold and SP1 does not properly load structured exception handling tables, which allows context-dependent attackers to bypass the SafeSEH security feature by leveraging a Visual C++ .NET 2003 application, aka "Windows Kernel SafeSEH Bypass Vulnerability."
