Description

Microsoft SQL Server 7 and 2000 contain several extended stored procedures which are written in an external language such as 'C'. These procedures are used to perform helper functions such as sending e-mail, and are often run with administrative privileges. Due to a flaw in the default permissions, any user can execute these procedures, effectively escalating their own privileges.
