Microsoft Print Spooler Service Impersonation Vulnerability (MS10-061) Scanner Detail

Tests whether target machines are vulnerable to ms10-061 Printer Spooler impersonation vulnerability.

This vulnerability was used in Stuxnet worm. The script checks for the vuln in a safe way without a possibility of crashing the remote system as this is not a memory corruption vulnerability. In order for the check to work it needs access to at least one shared printer on the remote system. By default it tries to enumerate printers by using LANMAN API which on some systems is not available by default. In that case user should specify printer share name as printer script argument. To find a printer share, smb-enum-shares can be used. Also, on some systems, accessing shares requires valid credentials which can be specified with smb library arguments smbuser and smbpassword.
