Microsoft Windows 10 Version 1703 Unsupported Version Detection

critical Nessus Plugin ID 118716
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote operating system is no longer supported.


Microsoft Windows 10 version 1703 is running on the remote host.
Microsoft ended support for Windows 10 version 1703 Home/Pro on October 9th, 2018 and ends for Windows 10 version 1703 Enterprise/Educational on October 8th, 2019.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain security vulnerabilities. Furthermore, Microsoft is unlikely to investigate or acknowledge reports of vulnerabilities.


Upgrade to a version of Microsoft Windows that is currently supported.
