Microsoft Windows DNS spoofing information disclosure
|win-dns-spoof-information-disclosure (36805)||Medium Risk|
The Microsoft Windows DNS service in certain versions of Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 could allow a remote attacker to spoof DNS responses and obtain sensitive information. The DNS service fails to provide an adequate amount of entropy in randomization of transaction IDs when querying an upstream DNS server. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information and modify the behavior of services running on a vulnerable system.
Apply the appropriate patch for your system, as listed in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS07-062. See References.
