Description

A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the ASN.1 parsing library in Microsoft Windows which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code under various user contexts depending on the exploitation vector. It is possible to trigger this buffer overflow in IIS by sending a malformed base64-encoded negotiate packet in an Authorization header during a request to the server.
