04.30.2003 - MS02-071: Flaw in Windows WM_TIMER Message Handling Can Enable Privilege Elevation (328310) - Updated



View Microsoft related news. Windows messages provide a way for interactive processes to react to user events (such as keystrokes or mouse movements) and communicate with other interactive processes. The WM_TIMER message is sent at the expiration of a timer, and it can be used to cause a process to run a timer callback function. This message may create a security vulnerability because it is possible for one process in the interactive desktop to use a WM_TIMER message to cause another process to run a callback function at the address of its choice, even if the second process did not set a timer. If that second process has higher privileges than the first process, this would provide the first process with a way of exercising the functions.

04.10.2003 - MS03-011: Flaw in Microsoft VM Could Enable System Compromise (816093)



View Microsoft related news. The Microsoft VM is a virtual machine for the Win32 operating environment. The Microsoft VM is shipped in most versions of Windows and in most versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. A new security vulnerability has been reported that affects the ByteCode Verifier component of the Microsoft VM. It occurs because the ByteCode verifier does not correctly look for certain malicious code when a Java applet is being loaded. The attack vector for this new security issue would likely involve an attacker creating a malicious Java applet and inserting it into a Web page that would exploit this vulnerability when it was opened. An attacker could then host this malicious Web page on a Web site or could send it to a user in e-mail. The present Microsoft VM has been updated to include a fix for this newly reported security vulnerability. This version of VM includes all previously released fixes to the VM.

04.09.2003 - MS03-012: Flaw In Winsock Proxy Service And ISA Firewall Service Can Cause Denial Of Service (331066)



View Microsoft related news. There is a flaw in the Winsock Proxy service in Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0, and the Microsoft Firewall service in ISA Server 2000, that would allow an attacker on the internal network to send a specially crafted packet that would cause the server to stop responding to internal and external requests. Receipt of such a packet would cause CPU utilization on the server to reach 100%, and thus make the server unresponsive. The Winsock Proxy service and Microsoft Firewall service work with FTP, telnet, mail, news, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), or other client applications that are compatible with Windows Sockets (Winsock). These services allow these applications to perform as if they were directly connected to the Internet. These services redirect the necessary communications functions to a Proxy Server 2.0 or ISA Server computer, thus establishing a communication path from the internal application to the Internet through it.
