Microsoft Windows Media Unicast Services DoS Vulnerability

If a certain malformed request is sent to a Windows Media Server, a synchronization error (or race condition) could be induced, thus opening up the possibility for further requests to halt all Unicast streaming media services. This particular vulnerability only affects Unicast media services, not Station, Program, or Monitor media services.

The Windows Media Unicast Service must be restarted from the Services Manager in order to regain normal functionality.
