CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database (NVD)
Summary:

An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Cryptography Next Generation (CNG) service when it fails to properly handle objects in memory.To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would have to log on to an affected system and run a specially crafted application.The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the service handles objects in memory., aka 'Windows Key Isolation Service Information Disclosure Vulnerability'. This CVE ID is unique from CVE-2020-0675, CVE-2020-0676, CVE-2020-0677, CVE-2020-0748, CVE-2020-0756.

Exploitability Analysis:

This is a vulnerability exploitable with only local access requires the attacker to have either physical access to the vulnerable system or a local (shell) account. Examples of locally exploitable vulnerabilities are peripheral attacks such as Firewire/USB DMA attacks, and local privilege escalations (e.g., sudo).

Exploitability Complexity:

Specialized access conditions or extenuating circumstances do not exist. The following are examples: The affected product typically requires access to a wide range of systems and users, possibly anonymous an untrusted (e.g., Internet-facing web or mail server). The affected configuration is default or ubiquitous. The attack can be performed manually and requires little skill or additional information gathering. The 'race condition' is a lazy one (i.e., it is technically a race but easily winnable).

Authentication:

Authentication is not required to access and exploit the vulnerability.

Confidentiality Impact:

There is considerable informational disclosure. Access to some system files is possible, but the attacker does not have control over what is obtained, or the scope of the loss is constrained. An example is a vulnerability that divulges only certain tables in a database.

Integrity Impact:

There is no impact to the integrity of the system.

Availability Impact:

There is no impact to the availability of the system.
