CERT Advisory CA-2003-28

A new CERT Advisory, CA-2003-28, was issued today. This one is for Buffer overflow condition in Microsoft Windows. This includes Windows 2000, XP and XP 64-Bit Edition.

The overflow is in the Windows Workstation Service (WKSSVC.DLL). This could allow remote attacks to execute arbitrary code or cause a DOS.

To fix the condition you will need to apply a patch specified in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS03-049.

Let’s get patching…
