Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework (May 2017)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a software framework installed that is
affected by a security feature bypass vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Microsoft .NET Framework installed on the remote
Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected
by a security bypass vulnerability in the Microsoft .NET Framework and
.NET Core components due to a failure to completely validate
certificates. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
present a certificate that is marked invalid for a specific use, but
the component uses it for that purpose, resulting in a bypass of the
Enhanced Key Usage taggings.
