Detail

Microsoft has released updates that address critical vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. Exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code, gain elevated privileges, or crash a vulnerable system.

I. Description

Microsoft has released updates to address vulnerabilities that affect Microsoft Windows as part of the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for January 2008. The most severe vulnerabilities could allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code. For more information, see the US-CERT Vulnerability Notes Database.

II. Impact

A remote, unauthenticated attacker could execute arbitrary code, gain elevated privileges, or cause a denial of service.

III. Solution

Apply updates from Microsoft

Microsoft has provided updates for these vulnerabilities in the January 2008 security bulletins. The security bulletins describe any known issues related to the updates. Administrators are encouraged to note these issues and test for any potentially adverse effects.
Administrators should consider using an automated update distribution system such as Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).

Open Source Vulnerability Database (OSVDB)

Id Description
40071 Microsoft Windows LSASS Crafted LPC Request Local Privilege Escalation

Windows contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to gain access to unauthorized privileges. The issue is triggered due to an error in Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS). This flaw may lead to a loss of integrity.
40070 Microsoft Windows TCP/IP IGMPv3 / MLDv2 Packet Handling Remote Code Execution

A buffer overflow exists in Windows. The TCP/IP implementation fails to validate IGMPv3 and MLDv2 packets resulting in a buffer overflow. With a specially crafted packet, a remote attacker can cause arbtrary code execution resulting in a loss of integrity.
40069 Microsoft Windows TCP/IP ICMP RDP Packet Handling Remote DoS

Windows contains a flaw that may allow a remote denial of service. The issue is triggered when handling fragmented router advertisement ICMP queries, and will result in loss of availability for the platform.
