critical Nessus Plugin ID 197296


The Microsoft Visual Studio Products are affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The Microsoft Visual Studio Products are missing security updates. They are, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including:

- Recursive clones on case-insensitive filesystems that support symlinks are susceptible to Remote Code Execution. (CVE-2024-32002)

- Remote Code Execution while cloning special-crafted local repositories. (CVE-2024-32004)

- A Remote Code Execution vulnerability exists in .NET 7.0 and .NET 8.0 where a stack buffer overrun occurs in .NET Double Parse routine. (CVE-2024-30045)

- A Vulnerability exists in Microsoft.AspNetCore.Server.Kestrel.Core.dll where a dead-lock can occur resulting in Denial of Service. (CVE-2024-30046)

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 security updates to address this issue:
- Update 15.9.62 for Visual Studio 2017
