New Windows Kernel Issue (MoKB)
Good morning/evening everyone.

Earlier today, we became aware of a new vulnerability that does not appear to have a workaround available.  On the outset, it does look like a Denial of Service style bug, but leaves room for remote execution possibilities.  From our take on it, the code must be run locally on the computer.  So depending on the delivery mechanism for the exploiting code, you may have a very nice attack. We are investigating this flaw further and hope to report something further such as workarounds, or ways to help mitigate this issue.
