Type Confusion in Content Protection HECI Service in Intel® Graphics Driver allows unprivileged user to elevate privileges via local access


Recommended Posts



The Intel® Content Protection HECI Service has a Type Confusion vulnerability which potentially can lead to a privilege escalation.  The HECI service software is distributed as part of the Intel Graphics Driver, and is used by the graphics driver to provide premium content playback services.


Intel highly recommends that users with affected drivers download and upgrade to the latest supported driver.

Interesting side note: The Intel document referred in your post reveals that there's indeed a driver branch between 15.47 and 15.60 - the 15.49 branch.
Updated information about driver accordingly.

Best regards,
