MS03-011: Flaw in Microsoft VM (816093)

This script is Copyright (C) 2003-2015 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 user running
the VM.

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.
