    I want to know the use of following undocumented stored procedures.
    1. sp_IsMBCSLeadByte
    2. xp_perfend
    3. xp_perfsample
    4. xp_perfstart
    5. xp_perfmonitor
    6. xp_schedulersignal
    7. xp_sqlregister

    These are generally considered as potentially hazardous stored procedures.
    Why is it so? What are the known vulnerabilities that these stored
    procedures cause?

    Thanks
