MS10-029: Vulnerability in Windows ISATAP Component Could Allow Spoofing (978338)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host is vulnerable to network spoofing attacks.

Description :

A spoofing vulnerability exists in the Microsoft Windows IPv6 stack
due to the way Windows checks the inner packet's IPv6 source address
in a tunneled ISATAP packet.

A remote attacker could exploit this by spoofing a trusted IP address,
which could be used to bypass security restrictions based on source
IP. This could also be exploited to disclose information if a
targeted host replies to the message using the spoofed IPv6 address.
