Detail

Revision Note: V2.0 (May 12, 2009): Added an entry in the section, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Related to This Security Update, explaining a detection change. As a result of this change, the MS08-066 update may be offered to affected systems running supported editions of Windows Server 2003 in a non-DNS server role. Microsoft recommends that customers offered the MS08-066 update apply the update at the earliest opportunity. Summary: This security update resolves two privately reported vulnerabilities and two publicly disclosed vulnerabilities in Windows DNS server and Windows WINS server. These vulnerabilities could allow a remote attacker to redirect network traffic intended for systems on the Internet to the attacker?s own systems.

Title: DNS Server Response Validation Vulnerability
Description: The DNS Resolver Cache Service (aka DNSCache) in Windows DNS Server in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, Server 2003 SP1 and SP2, and Server 2008 does not properly cache crafted DNS responses, which makes it easier for remote attackers to predict transaction IDs and poison caches by sending many crafted DNS queries that trigger "unnecessary lookups," aka "DNS Server Response Validation Vulnerability."

Title: WPAD WINS Server Registration Vulnerability
Description: The WINS server in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4 and Server 2003 SP1 and SP2 does not restrict registration of the (1) "wpad" and (2) "isatap" NetBIOS names, which allows remote authenticated users to hijack the Web Proxy Auto-Discovery (WPAD) and Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol (ISATAP) features, and conduct man-in-the-middle attacks by spoofing a proxy server or ISATAP route, by registering one of these names in the WINS database, aka "WPAD WINS Server Registration Vulnerability," a related issue to CVE-2007-1692.

Title: DNS Server Vulnerability in WPAD Registration Vulnerability
Description: Windows DNS Server in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, Server 2003 SP1 and SP2, and Server 2008, when dynamic updates are enabled, does not restrict registration of the "wpad" hostname, which allows remote authenticated users to hijack the Web Proxy Auto-Discovery (WPAD) feature, and conduct man-in-the-middle attacks by spoofing a proxy server, via a Dynamic Update request for this hostname, aka "DNS Server Vulnerability in WPAD Registration Vulnerability," a related issue to CVE-2007-1692.

Title: DNS Server Query Validation Vulnerability
Description: The DNS Resolver Cache Service (aka DNSCache) in Windows DNS Server in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, Server 2003 SP1 and SP2, and Server 2008, when dynamic updates are enabled, does not reuse cached DNS responses in all applicable situations, which makes it easier for remote attackers to predict transaction IDs and poison caches by simultaneously sending crafted DNS queries and responses, aka "DNS Server Query Validation Vulnerability."

Id Description
52520 Microsoft Windows WPAD WINS Server Registration Web Proxy MiTM Weakness

52519 Microsoft Windows DNS Server WPAD Registration Dynamic Update MiTM Weakness

Windows contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to spoof a WPAD (Web Proxy Auto-Discovery) DNS record. The issue is caused by the DNS server allowing any client to register a WPAD entry in DNS. It is possible that the flaw may allow a malicious proxy to redirect Internet traffic resulting in a loss of integrity.

Windows contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to poison its DNS cache. The issue is triggered by a weakness which allows for predictable transaction IDs, allowing spoofed records to be stored in the DNS cache. It is possible that the flaw may allow DNS cache poisoning resulting in a loss of integrity.
52517 Microsoft Windows DNS Server Query Validation Spoofing

Windows contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to spoof DNS records. The issue is triggered by the use of predictable transaction IDs in the Windows DNS Server. It is possible that the flaw may allow DNS cache poisoning resulting in a loss of integrity.
