The version of the .NET Framework installed on the remote host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


The remote Windows host has a version of the Microsoft .NET Framework that is affected by a vulnerability that allows a remote attacker to cause a denial of service by sending specially crafted requests to an ASP.NET web application running on the affected system.

Note that ASP.NET is not installed by default and ASP.NET must be registered and enabled for the host to be affected.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for .NET Framework 1.1 SP1, 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2, 3.5, 3.5.1, 4.0, 4.5, 4.5.1, and 4.5.2.
