MS09-013: Vulnerabilities in Windows HTTP Services Could Allow Remote Code Execution (960803)
High Nessus Plugin ID 36151
SynopsisThe remote host contains an API that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Windows HTTP Services installed on the remote host is affected by several vulnerabilities :
- An integer underflow triggered by a specially crafted response from a malicious web server (for example, during device discovery of UPnP devices on a network) may allow for arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2009-0086)
- Incomplete validation of the distinguished name in a digital certificate may, in combination with other attacks, allow an attacker to successfully spoof the digital certificate of a third-party website.
- A flaw in the way that Windows HTTP Services handles NTLM credentials may allow an attacker to reflect back a user's credentials and thereby gain access as that user. (CVE-2009-0550)
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista and 2008.
