Microsoft SQL Server Unsupported Version Detection

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 64784


An unsupported version of a database server is running on the remote host.


According to its self-reported version number, the installation of Microsoft SQL Server on the remote host is no longer supported.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain security vulnerabilities.


Upgrade to a version of Microsoft SQL Server that is currently supported.
