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.

Synopsis

The remote host has multiple vulnerabilities in its TCP/IP implementation.

Description

The TCP/IP stack installed on the remote Windows host is affected by one or more of the following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists in the Windows TCP/IP stack when processing specially crafted IPv6 packets with a malformed extension header that could cause the affected system to stop responding if IPv6 features are enabled, which is true by default in Windows Vista and 2008. (CVE-2010-1892)

- The Windows TCP/IP stack fails to properly handle data copied from user mode, which could result in an integer overflow and allow a local attacker to run arbitrary code with system-level privileges. (CVE-2010-1892)

Solution

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