MS05-019: Vulnerabilities in TCP/IP Could Allow Remote Code Execution (893066) (uncredentialed check)

high Nessus Plugin ID 18028


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host due to a flaw in the TCP/IP stack.


The remote host runs a version of Windows that has a flaw in its TCP/IP stack.

The flaw may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges on the remote host or to perform a denial of service attack against the remote host.

Proof of concept code is available to perform a denial of service attack against a vulnerable system.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP and 2003.
