I’ve noticed a few changes after installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update that breaks the credentialed scans with Nessus.
- The local administrator account is disabled (it was enabled before the update).
- The remote registry service is disabled (it was enabled before the update).
I’ve run a credentialed scan after enabling both settings again.
The anniversary update restored all security modifications to ‘default’.
A critical vulnerability (Microsoft .NET Framework Unsupported) was reported after installing the Anniversary update, this vulnerability was not present before the update.
This was fixed by a plugin modification.
