MS16-075: Security Update for Windows SMB Server (3164038)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Windows 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 in the
Microsoft Server Message Block (SMB) server when handling forwarded
credential requests that are intended for another service running
on the same host. An authenticated attacker can exploit this, via a
specially crafted application, to execute arbitrary code with elevated
permissions.
