MS16-076: Security Update for Netlogon (3167691)

High Nessus Plugin ID 91604


The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to improper handling of objects in memory. A domain-authenticated attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted Netlogon request to a domain controller, to execute arbitrary code.


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