Microsoft Windows DNS Server Escaped Zone Name Parameter Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Microsoft Windows Domain Name System (DNS) Server Service is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability in its Remote Procedure Call (RPC) interface.

A remote attacker may exploit this issue to run arbitrary code in the context of the DNS Server Service. The DNS service runs in the 'SYSTEM' context.

Successfully exploiting this issue allows attackers to execute arbitrary code, facilitating the remote compromise of affected computers.

Windows Server 2000 Service Pack 4, Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1, and Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 are confirmed vulnerable to this issue.

Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional SP4, Windows XP SP2, and Windows Vista are not affected by this vulnerability.
