Well, with the enhanced security configuration and firewall enabled, the
vulnerability is no longer "remotely exploitable", is it?
If you want to check for local vulnerabilities, you'll to run something
client-side. There's at least a half-dozen ways to do this in a domain
model (eg: GPO or logon scripts) -- but in a standalone environment,
you'll need an agent of some type.
