Patch Available for "Terminal Server Login Buffer Overflow"
Vulnerability

Originally posted: November 08, 2000

Summary
=======
Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates a security
vulnerability in Microsoft(r) Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Server. The
vulnerability could allow a malicious user to cause the Terminal
Server to fail or, in certain instances, to execute hostile code on
the server.


Frequently asked questions regarding this vulnerability and the patch
can be found at
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/fq00-087.asp

Issue
=====
An unchecked buffer in the Terminal Server login prompt could allow a
malicious user to cause the Terminal Server to execute arbitrary
code. The ability to execute arbitrary code would enable the
malicious user to add, change, or delete data, run code already on
the server, or upload new code to the server and run it. The
malicious user would not need to successfully login to the Terminal
Server in order to initiate this attack.

This vulnerability could be exploited remotely if connection requests
are not filtered. By default, Terminal Server listens on tcp port
3389. This port should be blocked at the firewall and/or router if
Terminal Server access from the Internet is not required.
