MS11-058: Vulnerabilities in DNS Server Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2562485) (remote check)

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

Synopsis :

The DNS server running on the remote host is affected by a memory
corruption vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Windows DNS server running on the remote host has a
memory corruption vulnerability that can be triggered by making a
specially crafted NAPTR query. This could allow an attacker to write
arbitrary data to the heap and potentially execute arbitrary code.

Note that upstream servers may filter this request, creating a false
negative, or may be vulnerable themselves, creating a false positive.
If the target is patched and shows up as vulnerable, check your
upstream DNS servers.

Note also that while Microsoft's advisory referenced multiple
vulnerabilities, Nessus only tests for the vulnerability described
