    This is in reference to exploit code available here:

    We (Douglas Mclean/and I) have checked it against
    windows 200 SP4 machines that "even if you apply the
    patch kb823980", you can get DOS attacks as tcp port
    135 service (loc-srv)gets crashed and we get this
    error on the box against which the exploit is being

    "SVCHOST.exe has generated errors and will be closed
    by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An
    error log is being created".

    You are not able to access Event log either and other
    funny things are detected too.

    So, even if you apply the patch MS03-026 you still are
    vulnerable and you can still get DOS attacks.
