DESCRIPTION:
Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Microsoft Windows, which
can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of
Service) or compromise a vulnerable system.

1) An error in the kernel's TCP/IP implementation (tcpip.sys) when
handling IGMPv3 and MLDv2 queries can be exploited to crash the
system and potentially execute arbitrary code via a specially crafted
IGMPv3 or MLDv2 packet.

NOTE: This vulnerability does not affect systems running Windows
2000.

2) An error in the kernel's TCP/IP implementation (tcpip.sys) when
handling fragmented router advertisement ICMP queries can be
exploited to cause the system to stop responding via a specially
crafted ICMP query.

Successful exploitation requires that Router Discovery Protocol (RDP)
is enabled (disabled by default).

NOTE: This vulnerability does not affect systems running Windows
Vista.

SOLUTION:
Apply patches.
