MS14-066: Vulnerability in Schannel Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2992611) (uncredentialed check)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution

Description :

The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution
vulnerability due to improper processing of packets by the Secure
Channel (Schannel) security package. An attacker can exploit this
issue by sending specially crafted packets to a Windows server.

Note that this plugin sends a client Certificate TLS handshake message
followed by a CertificateVerify message. Some Windows hosts will close
the connection upon receiving a client certificate for which it did
not ask for with a CertificateRequest message. In this case, the
plugin cannot proceed to detect the vulnerability as the
CertificateVerify message cannot be sent.
