The directory service on the remote host has a denial of service
The version of Active Directory installed on the remote host fails to
properly validate service principal names (SPN), which could result in
SPN collisions. If a collision occurs, services that use the SPN will
downgrade to NTLM when configured to do so. Services that are not
configured to negotiate will become unavailable.
A remote attacker who has local administrator privileges on a domain-
joined host could exploit this, resulting in a denial of service.
