The version of Active Directory on the remote Windows host can be used
to execute arbitrary code.
The version of the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS)
installed on the remote Windows host does not properly handle
malformed packets in LDAP messages when used in conjunction with
Microsoft Active Directory / Active Directory Application Mode /
Active Directory Lightweight Directory Service.
By sending a specially crafted LDAP message to a listening LSASS
server, an authenticated attacker with a member account within the
target Windows domain can overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary
code, thereby gaining complete control of the affected system.
