high Nessus Plugin ID 91604
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 remote code execution vulnerability.

Description

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.

Solution

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