MS05-011: Vulnerability in SMB may allow remote code execution (885250)
High Nessus Plugin ID 16326
SynopsisArbitrary code can be executed on the remote host.
DescriptionThe remote version of Windows contains a flaw in the Server Message Block (SMB) implementation that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send malformed responses to the remote SMB client, and would be able to either execute arbitrary code on the remote host or to perform a denial of service.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP and 2003.
