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: 4.9
SynopsisThe remote Windows host is susceptible to denial of service attacks.
DescriptionThe TCP/IP stack in use on the remote Windows host is potentially affected by the following denial of service vulnerabilities :
- By sending a sequence of specially crafted ICMP messages, an unauthenticated, remote attacker could cause the affected host to stop responding and automatically reboot. (CVE-2011-1871)
- By sending a request with a specially crafted URL, an unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to cause the affected host to stop responding and automatically reboot if it is serving web content and has URL-based QoS (Quality of Service) enabled. (CVE-2011-1965)
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Windows Vista, 2008, 7, and 2008 R2.
