MS09-013: Vulnerabilities in Windows HTTP Services Could Allow Remote Code Execution (960803)

high Nessus Plugin ID 36151
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host contains an API that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The 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)


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista and 2008.
