High Nessus Plugin ID 58848


Business accounting software installed on the remote Windows host has
multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of QuickBooks installed on the remote host has multiple
vulnerabilities. Versions 2008 through 2012 have multiple
vulnerabilities in the help system that could result in information
disclosure or memory corruption.

A remote attacker could exploit these issues by tricking a user into
requesting a maliciously crafted web page, resulting in arbitrary code


Fixes are available for QuickBooks 2008 through 2012 via the
automatic update mechanism. The presence of the patch can be
verified by checking if the digital signature of
HelpAsyncPluggableProtocol.dll has a signing date of April 27, 2012

pages are available. Refer to the researcher's advisory for more

be adequate under some circumstances.
