New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 7.4
SynopsisThe version of Active Directory on the remote Windows host can be used to execute arbitrary code.
DescriptionThe version of the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) installed on the remote Windows host does not properly handle malformed packets in LDAP messages when used in conjunction with Microsoft Active Directory / Active Directory Application Mode / Active Directory Lightweight Directory Service.
By sending a specially crafted LDAP message to a listening LSASS server, an authenticated attacker with a member account within the target Windows domain can overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code, thereby gaining complete control of the affected system.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, and 2008 R2.
