high Nessus Plugin ID 181443


The Microsoft Team Foundation Server or Azure DevOps is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.


The Microsoft Team Foundation Server or Azure DevOps install is missing security updates. It is, therefore, affected by multiple server remote code execution vulnerabilities. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass authentication and execute arbitrary commands.

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


Microsoft has released the following updates:
- Azure DevOps Server 2022.0.1 with patch 3
- Azure DevOps Server 2020.1.2 with patch 8
- Azure DevOps Server 2020.0.2 with patch 4
- Azure DevOps Server 2019.1.2 with patch 5
- Azure DevOps Server 2019.0.1 with patch 15
