high Nessus Plugin ID 55123
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

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through the installed SMB client.

Description

The version of the SMB client software installed on the remote Windows host has an unspecified code execution vulnerability. The client does not properly parse unspecified SMB responses. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code.

Solution

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