Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft
Active Directory Federation Services.
The version of Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS)
installed on the remote host is affected by the following
- Insufficient session management validation in the
single sign-on functionality of ADFS could allow a
remote, authenticated user to spoof the identity of
another user. (CVE-2009-2508)
- Incorrect validation of request headers when a remote,
authenticated user connects to an ADFS-enabled web
server could be leveraged to perform actions on the
affected IIS server with the same rights as the Worker
Process Identity (WPI), which by default is configured
with Network Service account privileges.
