Microsoft Security Advisory 4500331: Guidance for older platforms (XP / 2003) (BlueKeep)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 125073


The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a unspecified flaw that exists in the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) service. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to execute arbitrary code with full user privileges.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP and 2003.
