Microsoft SQL Server User Authentication Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

A vulnerability has been discovered in Microsoft SQL Server that could make it possible for remote attackers to gain access to target hosts.

It is possible for an attacker to cause a buffer overflow condition on the vulnerable SQL server with a malformed login request. This may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code as the SQL Server process.

This vulnerability reportedly occurs even before authentication can proceed.
