New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7

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.
