MS05-048: Vulnerability in the Microsoft Collaboration Data Objects Could Allow Remote Code Execution (907245)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20001


A flaw in the Microsoft Collaboration Data Object could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.


An 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.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP and 2003.
