MS10-006: Vulnerabilities in SMB Client Could Allow Remote Code Execution (978251)

High Nessus Plugin ID 44416


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through its SMB


The version of the SMB client software installed on the remote
Windows host is affected by two vulnerabilities that could allow
arbitrary code execution :

- Improper validation of fields in SMB responses can lead
to a pool corruption issue and in turn to arbitrary
code execution with SYSTEM level privileges.

- Improper handling of a race condition involving SMB
'Negotiate' responses may allow a remote attacker to
execute arbitrary code, cause a denial of service, or
escalate his privileges. (CVE-2010-0017)

Note that successful exploitation of either issue requires an
attacker to trick a user on the affected host into initiating an SMB
connection to a malicious SMB server.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, 2003,
Vista, 2008, 7, and 2008 R2.
