MS11-048: Vulnerability in SMB Server Could Allow Denial of Service (2536275) (remote check)

high Nessus Plugin ID 55286


The remote Windows host has a denial of service vulnerability.


The remote host is affected by a vulnerability in the SMB service that can reportedly be abused by a remote, unauthenticated attacker to cause the host to stop responding until manually restarted.

This vulnerability depends on access to a Windows file share, but might not necessarily require credentials.


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