The remote Windows host is susceptible to a denial of service attack.
A denial of service vulnerability exists in the implementation of the
Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) on the remote Windows host due to the way
it accesses an object in memory that has been improperly initialized or
has been deleted.
If RDP has been enabled on the affected system, an unauthenticated,
remote attacker could leverage this vulnerability to cause the system to
stop responding and automatically reboot by sending a sequence of
specially crafted RDP packets to it.
Note that the Remote Desktop Protocol is not enabled by default.
