New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.3
SynopsisA flaw in the Microsoft Collaboration Data Object could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
DescriptionAn unchecked buffer condition could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
To execute this flaw, an attacker would need to send a malformed message via SMTP to the remote host, either by using the SMTP server (if Exchange is installed) or by sending an email to a user on the remote host.
When the email is processed by CDO, an unchecked buffer may allow cause code execution.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP and 2003.
