Description

Microsoft SQL Server 2000 listens on UDP port 1434 for incoming "resolution service" requests. Sending a particular malformed request will overflow a stack-based buffer and overwrite the return address, resulting in a remotely exploitable vulnerability. This attack does not require valid credentials.
