MS15-082: Vulnerability in RDP Could Allow Remote Code Execution (3080348)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore
affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A spoofing vulnerability exists due to the Remote
Desktop Session Host (RDSH) not properly validating
certificates during authentication. An man-in-the-middle
attacker can exploit this to impersonate a client
session by spoofing a TLS/SSL server via a certificate
that appears valid. (CVE-2015-2472)

- A code execution vulnerability exists due to the Remote
Desktop Protocol client not properly handling the
loading of certain specially crafted DLL files. An
attacker, by placing a malicious DLL in the user's
current working directory and convincing the user to
open a crafted RDP file, can exploit this issue to
execute arbitrary code in the context of the user.
(CVE-2015-2473)
