    Multiple Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Products - February 2005


    Microsoft has released several security bulletins which describe
    vulnerabilities affecting many components of the Windows operating
    system. X-Force has chosen to highlight two issues in particular.

    Updates have been issued that address network-based remote compromise
    vulnerabilities in the SMB client and in the License Logging Service.
    These vulnerabilities have the potential to allow an attacker to
    remotely compromise the affected operating systems.

    Business Impact:

    Successful exploitation could be leveraged to gain complete control
    over target systems, and might lead to malware installation, exposure
    of confidential information, or further network compromise. It is
    possible for an attacker to run arbitrary code or gain access to
    restricted resources on vulnerable systems by exploiting any of the
    aforementioned vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities could be
    exploited without any user interaction in most cases.
