MS08-037: Vulnerabilities in DNS Could Allow Spoofing (953230)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 33441


The remote host is vulnerable to DNS spoofing attacks.


Flaws in the remote DNS library may let an attacker send malicious DNS responses to DNS requests made by the remote host, thereby spoofing or redirecting internet traffic from legitimate locations.


Microsoft has released patches for Windows 2000, XP, and 2003 Server.
