Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework (April 2017)

high Nessus Plugin ID 99365
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.


The remote Windows host has a software framework installed that is affected by an arbitrary code execution vulnerability.


The version of Microsoft .NET Framework installed on the remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by an arbitrary code execution vulnerability due to a failure to properly validate input before loading libraries. A local attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.5, 3.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, and 4.7
