MS11-035: Vulnerability in WINS Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2524426)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft
Windows Internet Name Service (WINS).

Description :

The version of WINS (Windows Internet Name Service) installed on the
remote Windows host is affected by a memory corruption vulnerability due
to a logic error when handling a socket send exception.

By sending specially crafted packets to the affected WINS system, a
remote attacker can potentially exploit this issue to execute arbitrary
code as either SYSTEM on Windows 2003 or Local Service on Windows 2008 /
2008 R2.

Note that WINS is not installed by default on any of the affected
operating systems, although Nessus has determined it is on this host.
