MS KB3097966: Inadvertently Disclosed Digital Certificates Could Allow Spoofing

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

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an out-of-date SSL certificate blacklist.

Description :

The remote host is missing KB3097966, KB2677070 (automatic updater),
or the latest disallowed certificate update using KB2813430 (manual
updater). If KB2677070 has been installed, it has not yet obtained the
latest auto-updates.

Note that this plugin checks that the updaters have actually updated
the disallowed CTL list, not that the KBs listed are installed. This
approach was taken since the KB2677070 automatic updater isn't
triggered unless software that relies on SSL in the Microsoft
Cryptography API is being actively used on the remote host.

Solution :

Ensure that the KB3097966 security update has been installed and that
the Microsoft automatic updater for revoked certificates is installed
and running.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.8
