MS11-053: Vulnerability in Bluetooth Stack Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2566220)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 55569
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.


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Bluetooth.


The remote host contains a version of the Windows Bluetooth stack that is affected by a code execution vulnerability. By sending a series of specially crafted Bluetooth packets to an affected system, an attacker could install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Note that this vulnerability only affects systems with Bluetooth capability.


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