MS10-012: Vulnerabilities in SMB Could Allow Remote Code Execution (971468) (uncredentialed check)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 47556
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.


It is possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote Windows host due to flaws in its SMB implementation.


The remote host is affected by several vulnerabilities in the SMB server that may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code or perform a denial of service against the remote host.

These vulnerabilities depend on access to a shared drive, but do not necessarily require credentials.


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