RE: [ISSForum] ISS Scanner - Wrong Vulnerability Reporting



Hello Sunil:

Thanks for the report.  Would it be possible to get some additional
information regarding this issue?  If so, please send the following to
me directly:

1.)  Session Log created from the scan.  This will be located at
C:\Program Files\ISS\issSensors_scanner_1\log

2.)  WINMSD Report of the target system that was scanned - Retrieve with
the report with following steps:
----------------------
Start -> Run -> winmsd
When the 'System Information' screen comes up, select 'Action' -> 'Save
As Text File' or 'Save As System Information File'.
----------------------

If you can send me the above 2 files, it should give us some additional
insight into what is happening exactly.  With this MS03-018 check, any
machine that has an unpatched IIS install will be flagged whether or not
it is running.  Since this is a patch check, the purpose is to tell you
whether or not you are patched, which can be slightly different than
whether or not you are truly vulnerable.  If you have any questions, let
me know.

Thanks,

Subject: [ISSForum] ISS Scanner - Wrong Vulnerability Reporting

Hi,

I have a small problem, appreciate help in this...

I am running an ISS internet scanner 7.0 with XPU 7.30 against Windows
2000 systems.

It reports MS03-018 patch is missing and IIS is vulnerable.

But these machines do not have IIS installed! Verified this with the
services running and MBSA

Any body has this experience? Why is this happening?

Appreciate help in this regard

Regards,

Sunil Varkey
