|Who is Vulnerable?|
|Vulnerability Description||Plug and Play (PnP) allows the operating system to detect new hardware (e.g mouse, a digital camera) when you install it on a system. A vulnerability was detected in the Plug and Play (PnP) service for several Microsoft Windows operating systems that can allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a PnP crafted packet.|
This protection will block the Plug and Play (PnP) interface over the MS-RPC Common Internet File Sharing (CIFS) protocol. The detect mode makes it possible to track unauthorized access attempts without blocking them.Please note that when the detect mode is enabled with Microsoft Networks > File and Print Sharing protection, the MS-RPC over CIFS protection is also activated in detect mode.
In order for the protection to be activated, update your Security Gateway product to the latest IPS update.For information on how to update IPS, go to SBP-2006-05, click on Protection tab and select the version of your choice.
This protection's log will contain the following information:
Attack Name: MS-RPC over CIFS Enforcement Violation.
