Recommended Posts

Secunia writes (http://secunia.com/advisories/13802/):


A vulnerability has been reported in Microsoft Windows XP and 2003, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.


The vulnerability is caused due to an unchecked buffer in the indexing service. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary code through a malicious query.


Note: This vulnerability has been set to "From Remote" because the indexing service can be configured to be accessible through Internet Information Services (IIS).
