Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a denial of service vulnerability that may
lead to privilege escalation.

Description :

It is possible to disable the remote RPC DOM interface by sending it a
malformed request. The system will need to be rebooted to recover. A
remote attacker could exploit this flaw to remotely disable RPC-
related programs on this host.

If a denial of service attack is successful, a local attacker could
escalate privileges by hijacking the epmapper pipe.
