Internet Scanner X-Press Update 6.13 is now available from the ISS Download
Center: <http://www.iss.net/download/>. Internet Scanner XPU 6.13
contains 15 new checks and improvements for a number of existing
checks. XPU 6.13 focuses on Passport.

PROTECTION BENEFITS
.NET Framework. The focus of XPU 6.13 is Passport and the .NET
framework. Ten checks are included that identify Passport configurations
that could impact your security stance. These checks address settings that
may enable access to logs, user authentication, profile information, and
cookies. Default settings and sample programs are identified that may
provide an attacker well known entry points.

Application Protection. XPU 6.13 includes a check to address
denial of service vulnerabilities in Apache and Microsoft Exchange. A
Yahoo Instant Messenger buffer overflow check strengthens the peer-to-peer
capabilities of Internet Scanner. A check is also included to identify
Open SSH.

Other Malicious Code. A check for Litmus backdoor is included to
identify systems that are infected with this backdoor and can be controlled
through an IRC network.
