Windows Phone7 < 7.0.7392 Out-of-Date SSL Blacklist

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The Windows Phone7 has an out-of-date SSL certificate blacklist.

Description :

The remote host is missing KB2524375, which updates the system's SSL
certificate blacklist.

A certificate authority (CA) has revoked a number of fraudulent SSL
certificates for several prominent, public websites. Without this
update, browsers will be unable to learn that the certificates have been
revoked if either Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) is disabled,
or OCSP is enabled and fails.

If an attacker can trick someone into using the affected browser and
visiting a malicious website using one of the fraudulent certificates,
the attacker may be able to fool that user into believing the site is a
legitimate one. In turn, the user could send credentials to the
malicious site or download and install applications.
