On Thursday, Microsoft released a critical patch (MS08-067) for a remotely exploitable flaw in Windows. The Tenable research team released two plugins to check for this flaw:
- Plugin #34477, which does not require any credential, which remotely determines if a Windows 2000, XP or 2003 host is vulnerable to the overflow.
- Plugin #34476, which requires credentials, determines if the patch has properly been installed on the remote host by checking the version of the NetApi32.dll
