MS00-036: NT ResetBrowser frame & HostAnnouncement flood patch (262694)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 10434


It is possible to partially crash the remote host.


The hotfix for the 'ResetBrowser Frame' and the 'HostAnnouncement flood' has not been applied.

The first of these vulnerabilities allows anyone to shut down the network browser of this host at will.

The second vulnerability allows an attacker to add thousands of bogus entries in the master browser, which will consume most of the network bandwidth as a side effect.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows NT and 2000.
