MS03-039: Microsoft RPC Interface Buffer Overrun (824146) (uncredentialed check)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 11835


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host.


The remote host is running a version of Windows that has a flaw in its RPC interface, which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code and gain SYSTEM privileges.

An attacker or a worm could use it to gain the control of this host.

Note that this is NOT the same bug as the one described in MS03-026, which fixes the flaw exploited by the 'MSBlast' (or LoveSan) worm.


Microsoft has released patches for Windows NT, 2000, XP, and 2003.
