The remote Windows host is susceptible to a denial of service attack.
The DNS server installed on the remote host does not properly handle
objects in memory when looking up the resource record of a domain. By
sending a specially crafted DNS query, an attacker may be able to
exploit this flaw and cause the DNS server on the remote host to stop
responding and eventually restart.
