IIS Lockdown Wizard version 2.1 works by turning off unnecessary features, thus reducing attack surface available to attackers. To provide multiple layers of protection against attackers, URLscan, with customized templates for each supported server role, is integrated into the IIS Lockdown Wizard. To keep the server completely secure, however, all hotfixes are required before and after applying IIS Lockdown Wizard to stay protected against known security vulnerabilities.
Microsoft has released an updated version of the URLScan security tool, 2.5, with additional functionality that provides greater security and functionality than previous versions of the tool. URLScan 2.5 is an update to URLScan 1.0 and URLScan 2.0.
Important Urlscan stops many types of attacks but is not a substitute for staying up to date on patches. Microsoft strongly recommends that customers apply security patches to keep the server secure and fix known security vulnerabilities.
