Medium Nessus Plugin ID 77165


The remote Windows host is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is affected by a security feature bypass vulnerability in Microsoft Remote Procedure Call (LRPC). The vulnerability is due to RPC improperly freeing malformed messages, allowing an attacker to fill up the address space of a process.
Successful exploitation of the issue allows an attacker to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature.
