MS16-072: Security Update for Group Policy (3163622)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by an elevation of privilege
vulnerability.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by an elevation of privilege vulnerability due to
a lack of Kerberos authentication for certain calls over LDAP when
processing group policy updates. A man-in-the-middle attacker can
exploit this vulnerability to create arbitrary group policies and
grant a standard user elevated, administrative privileges.
