MS10-029: Vulnerability in Windows ISATAP Component Could Allow Spoofing (978338)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 45516
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 is vulnerable to network spoofing attacks.


A spoofing vulnerability exists in the Microsoft Windows IPv6 stack due to the way Windows checks the inner packet's IPv6 source address in a tunneled ISATAP packet.

A remote attacker could exploit this by spoofing a trusted IP address, which could be used to bypass security restrictions based on source IP. This could also be exploited to disclose information if a targeted host replies to the message using the spoofed IPv6 address.


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