Microsoft Issues Emergency Fix for Domain Privileges Security in Windows
Microsoft Corp issued an emergency software update to fix a security glitch that affects domain privileges in all supported versions of Windows.

The vulnerability could allow an attacker to upgrade unprivileged domain user account privileges to those of a domain administrator account.

The update was released on Tuesday, according to information available on the company's Security Response Center website.

Microsoft said it was aware of limited, targeted attacks that aimed to exploit the security issue at the time it issued the update.

On Tuesday, November 18, 2014, at approximately 10 a.m. PST, we will release an out-of-band security update to address a vulnerability in Windows.

We strongly encourage customers to apply this update as soon as possible, following the directions in the security bulletin.
