Vulnerabilities in SMB Server Could Allow Remote Code Execution

UpdatesDescription: This security update resolves several privately reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The most severe of these vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if an attacker created a specially crafted SMB packet and sent the packet to an affected system. Firewall best practices and standard default firewall configurations can help protect networks from attacks originating outside the enterprise perimeter that would attempt to exploit these vulnerabilities. The security update addresses these vulnerabilities by correcting the way that SMB validates SMB requests.
