A free security scanning facility has been made available to allow users to check if they are vulnerable to the recently patched Microsoft plug and play service vulnerability.

A free security scanning facility has been made available to allow users to check if they are vulnerable to the recently patched Microsoft plug and play service vulnerability.

Security company eEye Digital Security has launched the scanning product after code to exploit the Windows flaw began circulating on the internet.

Microsoft issued a patch for the threat as part of its monthly patching cycle last week. If successfully exploited, the vulnerability can allow an attacker to take full control of a remote system and potentially perform malicious tasks. 

The Retina UMPNP Scanner audit tool scans networked systems and detects if any are vulnerable to the vulnerability, allowing administrators to efficiently protect their networks. 

The tool can be downloaded at:
