MS02-052: Flaw in Microsoft VM Could Allow Code Execution (810030)

This script is Copyright (C) 2002-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through the VM.

Description :

The remote host is running a Microsoft VM machine that has a bug
in its bytecode verifier that could allow a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code on this host, with the privileges of the SYSTEM.

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need to send a malformed
applet to a user on this host, and have him execute it. The malicious
applet would then be able to execute code outside the sandbox of the VM.
