Sourcefire VRT Update
The Sourcefire VRT is aware of vulnerabilities affecting hosts using the Microsoft DNS Server Service. This release enhances the detection capabilities for this vulnerability.
Microsoft Security Advisory (935964):
Microsoft DNS Server Service is prone to a vulnerability that may allow a remote attacker to execute code on an affected system. This issue is present in the RPC interface of servers using Microsoft's implementation of DNS.
In order to detect attacks targeting this vulnerability, the DCE/RPC preprocessor must be configured to use 'autodetect'. This is the default behavior for the preprocessor.
The Sourcefire VRT has continued research into this issue. As a result, this release provides improved detection for attacks targeting this vulnerability.
