Microsoft Windows DCOM RPC Interface Buffer Overrun Vulnerability

eEye has released a free scanning tool for administrators to detect systems vulnerable to this issue. Please check the references section for a link to download this utility.

** Several reports state that the RPC/DCOM service may still be vulnerable to a denial of service attack even if the Microsoft-supplied patch has been applied.

Microsoft has released patches to address this issue. Note that Windows
NT 4.0 Workstation reached its end of life on June 30th, 2003. Because of
this, Microsoft has not released a supported NT 4.0 Workstation patch.
The Windows NT 4.0 Server patch may work on NT 4.0 Workstation, however,
this has not been tested nor is it supported by Microsoft.

** CERT/CC reported an unrelated vulnerability in DCE implementations provided by various vendors that may be triggered by exploits or scanning tools associated with this issue. Please see BID 8371 for further details on the availability of fixes for affected implementations. It should be noted that this is a side-effect that may cause problems with DCE implementations, but does not affect Microsoft Windows itself.

Microsoft has released an update to their advisory stated that while the provided Windows 2000 patch will install on Windows 2000 SP2, it is unsupported. Microsoft recommends users to upgrade to a supported Service Pack. Further information can be found in MS03-026.

Cisco has released an advisory detailing products affected by this vulnerability, as well as making fix information available. Additional details available in referenced advisory.

Microsoft has released new fixes that supersede the original fixes for this issue. Administrators are advised to apply the new patches as they also address BID 8458, 8459, and 8460 in addition to this BID.

HP has made fixes available for OpenVMS.
