Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through the WINS service

Description :

The remote host has a Windows WINS server installed.

The remote version of this server has two vulnerabilities that may allow an
attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote system:

- One heap overflow vulnerability can be exploited by any attacker.

- One integer overflow vulnerability can be exploited by a WINS replication
partner.

An attacker may use these flaws to execute arbitrary code on the remote
system with SYSTEM privileges.
