Description

Microsoft products contain multiple vulnerabilities in handling of SNMP requests and traps. A general report for multiple vendors was initially published on February 12 (SNMP-GENERIC-0001), however more information is now available and a separate id has been allocated for the Microsoft SNMP vulnerabilities.

Buffer overflows in SNMP agent service in Windows 95/98/98SE, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, and Windows XP allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code via a malformed management request.

Solution(s)

  • snmp-microsoft-0001
