MS11-005: Vulnerability in Active Directory Could Allow Denial of Service (2478953)

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

Synopsis :

The directory service on the remote host is affected by denial of
service vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Active Directory installed on the remote host fails to
properly validate service principal names (SPN), which could result in
SPN collisions. If a collision occurs, services that use the SPN will
downgrade to NTLM when configured to do so. Services that are not
configured to negotiate will become unavailable.

A remote attacker who has local administrator privileges on a domain-
joined host can exploit this, resulting in a denial of service.
