Microsoft Windows XP Windows Redirector buffer overflow
|winxp-windows-redirector-bo (11260)||High Risk|
The Windows Redirector component in Windows XP is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking of user-supplied parameters. The Windows Redirector component is used by a Windows client to access local or remote files, and is compatible with any network protocol. By executing a program that calls the Windows Redirector and using that program to pass malformed parameter data to the Windows Redirector, a local attacker with valid login credentials could overflow a buffer and cause the system to crash or execute arbitrary code on the system with SYSTEM level privileges.
Apply the appropriate patch for your system, as listed in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-044. See References.
Note: Microsoft originally provided a patch for this vulnerability in MS03-005, but it was superseded by the patch released with MS04-044. See References.
