KB5031362: Windows 10 Version 1607 and Windows Server 2016 Security Update (October 2023)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 182862


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is missing security update 5031362. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities

- The HTTP/2 protocol allows a denial of service (server resource consumption) because request cancellation can reset many streams quickly, as exploited in the wild in August through October 2023. (CVE-2023-44487)
- Microsoft WDAC OLE DB provider for SQL Server Remote Code Execution Vulnerability (CVE-2023-36577)

- Windows IIS Server Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability (CVE-2023-36434)

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