eEye Digital Security has reported a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the Workstation Service (wkssvc.dll) within the "NetpManageIPCConnect()" function. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a specially crafted message sent to the system.
This can e.g. be exploited via a NetrJoinDomain2 RPC call with an overly long MachineName in the second argument.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code, but requires Administrator privileges on Windows XP SP2.
