|Who is Vulnerable?|
|Vulnerability Description||MSSQL Protections use a TDS protocol parser. A parsing error can be an indication of malicious traffic.If a parsing error occurs, other protections might not be able to run.Note that if you are using TLS/SSL negotiation over MSSQL ports, traffic might not be inspected.|
By enabling this protection, You can configure the action that the parser will take once a parser error occurs. You can choose to drop the connection (in order to prevent malicious traffic from overriding other protections)or you can choose only to log those events.A "Detect" mode makes it possible to track unauthorized traffic without blocking it.
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.
