MS10-006: Vulnerabilities in SMB Client Could Allow Remote Code Execution (978251)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through its SMB

Description :

The version of the SMB client software installed on the remote
Windows host is affected by two vulnerabilities that could allow
arbitrary code execution :

- Improper validation of fields in SMB responses can lead
to a pool corruption issue and in turn to arbitrary
code execution with SYSTEM level privileges.

- Improper handling of a race condition involving SMB
'Negotiate' responses may allow a remote attacker to
execute arbitrary code, cause a denial of service, or
escalate his privileges. (CVE-2010-0017)

Note that successful exploitation of either issue requires an
attacker to trick a user on the affected host into initiating an SMB
connection to a malicious SMB server.
