Internet Security Systems Protection Alert
February 8, 2005
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.
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.
