High Nessus Plugin ID 58657
SynopsisThe .NET Framework install on the remote Windows host could allow arbitrary code execution.
DescriptionThe version of the .NET Framework installed on the remote host reportedly is affected by a code execution vulnerability because of the way .NET Framework validates parameters when passing data to a function.
