MS17-008: Security Update for Windows Hyper-V (4013082)

High Nessus Plugin ID 97745

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: 7.3


The remote Windows host is affected multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due to improper validation of vSMB packets. An attacker on a guest operating system can exploit these vulnerabilities, via a specially crafted application, to execute arbitrary code on the host. (CVE-2017-0021, CVE-2017-0095)

- Multiple denial of service vulnerabilities exist due to improper validation of input from a privileged user on a guest operating system. An attacker with a privileged account on a guest operating system can exploit these vulnerabilities, via a specially crafted application, to crash the host machine. (CVE-2017-0051, CVE-2017-0074, CVE-2017-0076, CVE-2017-0097, CVE-2017-0098, CVE-2017-0099)

Note that customers who have not enabled the Hyper-V role are not affected.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 2012, 8.1, 2012 R2, 10 and 2016.
