MS08-047: Vulnerability in IPsec Policy Processing Could Allow Information Disclosure (953733)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 33876


The remote host IPsec policy processing could lead to information disclosure.


The remote version of Windows contains a bug in its IPsec implementation which might lead to information disclosure.

Specifically, when importing a Windows Server 2003 IPsec policy into a Windows Server 2008 domain, the system could ignore the IPsec policies and transmit the traffic in cleartext.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Vista and Server 2008.
