high Nessus Plugin ID 69330
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.

Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description

The remote Windows host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to the Windows TCP/IP stack improperly allocating memory for incoming ICMPv6 packets. An attacker could use a specially crafted ICMPv6 packet to exploit this vulnerability and cause a target system to stop responding until it is restarted.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 8, and 2012.
