01.08.2003 - MS02-070: Flaw in SMB Signing Could Enable Group Policy to be Modified (329170)



View Microsoft-WindowsXP related news. A flaw in the implementation of SMB signing in Windows 2000 and Windows XP can permit an attacker to silently downgrade the SMB signing settings on an affected computer. To do this, an attacker must have access to the session negotiation data as it is exchanged between a client and server, and must be able to modify the data in a way that exploits the flaw. This can cause either or both computers to send unsigned data no matter what signing policy the administrator sets. After the attacker downgrades the signing setting, the attacker can continue to monitor and change data in the session. The lack of signing prevents the communicators from detecting the changes.

12.12.2002 - MS02-071: Flaw in Windows WM_TIMER Message Handling Can Enable Privilege Elevation (328310)



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.
