Microsoft Security Bulletin: April 12

Qualys® Vulnerability R&D Lab has released new vulnerability checks in the Qualys Cloud Platform to protect organizations against vulnerabilities that were announced today. Customers can immediately audit their networks for these and other new vulnerabilities by accessing their Qualys subscription. Visit our blog to see how to prioritize remediation.

Non-Qualys customers can audit their network for these and other vulnerabilites by signing up for a Qualys Free Trial, or trying our FreeScan Service.


This new vulnerability check is included in Qualys vulnerability signature 1.28.85-3. Each Qualys account is automatically updated with the latest vulnerability signatures as they become available. To view the vulnerability signature version in your account, from the Qualys Help menu, select the About tab.


To perform a selective vulnerability scan, configure a scan profile to use the following options:

  1. Ensure access to TCP ports 135 and 139 are available.
  2. Enable Windows Authentication (specify Authentication Records).
  3. Enable the following Qualys IDs:
    • 100099
    • 90692
    • 90699
    • 110132
    • 110148
    • 110146
    • 90675
    • 90698
    • 90679
    • 90694

    • 90695
    • 90700
    • 90697
    • 90693
    • 90701
  4. If you would like the scan to return the Windows Hostname, also include QID 82044 and ensure access to UDP port 137 is available.
  5. If you would like to be notified if Qualys is unable to log on to a host (if Authentication fails), also include QID 105015.

In addition, prior to running a scan for these new vulnerabilities, you can estimate your exposure to these new threats by running the Risk Analysis Report, available from the Qualys Vulnerability Management Reports tab.
