Security Update for .NET Core SDK (May 2019)

high Nessus Plugin ID 125225
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 Windows host is affected by a .NET Core SDK vulnerability.


The Microsoft .NET Core SDK installation on the remote host is version 1.x < 1.1.14, 2.1.x < 2.1.507 or 2.1.604, 2.2.x < 2.2.107 or 2.2.204.
It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability when .NET Core improperly handles web requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this issue, via sending a specially crafted requests to the .NET Core application, to cause the application to stop responding.
