MS02-018: Microsoft Windows Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC) Malformed Input DoS (319733) (intrusive check)
High Nessus Plugin ID 10939
The remote service is prone to a denial of service attack.
By sending a long series of malformed data (such as 20200 NULL bytes) to the remote Windows MSDTC service, it is possible for an attacker to cause the associated MSDTC.EXE to use 100% of the available CPU and exhaust kernel resources.
Microsoft has reportedly included the fix in MS02-018.
