Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73987


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities due to Windows improperly handling iSCSI packets. A remote attacker could send large amounts of specially crafted iSCSI packets to the host and cause the system to stop responding until it is restarted.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Server 2008 R2, 2012, and 2012 R2. Microsoft has announced that Windows Storage Server 2008 will not be updated and instead customers should follow the guidelines referenced in the advisory.
