medium Nessus Plugin ID 49223


The remote web server may allow remote code execution.


The version of IIS installed on the remote host has the following vulnerabilities :

- Sending a specially crafted request for an ASP page on a website hosted by IIS can result in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1899)

- Sending a specially crafted HTTP request to an IIS server with FastCGI enabled can result in remote code execution. (CVE-2010-2730)

- Sending a specially crafted request to an IIS server running on Windows XP can allow a remote attacker to bypass the need to authenticate to access restricted resources. (CVE-2010-2731)


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