Critical Nessus Plugin ID 11835
SynopsisArbitrary code can be executed on the remote host.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of Windows that has a flaw in its RPC interface, which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code and gain SYSTEM privileges.
An attacker or a worm could use it to gain the control of this host.
Note that this is NOT the same bug as the one described in MS03-026, which fixes the flaw exploited by the 'MSBlast' (or LoveSan) worm.
SolutionMicrosoft has released patches for Windows NT, 2000, XP, and 2003.
