The scientific paper identifies the vulnerabilities in modern Windows Server Operating Systems. Contemporary tools, which can be found on the Internet, have been used in order to provide statistical and quantitative evidence regarding vulnerabilities in most Windows server OS ranging from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2016. Two scanning methods are implemented, each with three vulnerability scanners. These scanners reveal the plethora of vulnerabilities and the efficiency of the released service packs. The conclusions from the comparison between various vulnerability scanners are presented.
