MS17-019: Security Update for Active Directory Federation Services (4010320)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 97754


The remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) when handling XML external entities. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, via a specially crafted request, to disclose sensitive information.


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