Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Spoofing (KB15498768)

high Nessus Plugin ID 165336


A system management application installed on the remote host is affected by a spoofing vulnerability.


The Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager application installed on the remote host is missing a security hotfix documented in KB15498768. It is, therefore, affected by a spoofing vulnerability. Under some conditions, clients will fallback to NTLM authentication even if NTLM authentication is disabled.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Apply the security patch according to KB15498768.
