Microsoft Releases Security Updates
Two new security updates for Windows 2000 Server, Advanced Server.
Microsoft has released two new Win2K security updates:
- “Malformed Domain Controller Service Request”—This vulnerability
specifically affects Win2K Server and Advanced Server. If a malicious
user sends a stream of malformed data packets to a domain controller,
these packets can disrupt service request processing and user authentication.
To download the security update, go to www.microsoft.com/windows2000/downloads/critical/
- “Malformed Event Record”—If a malicious user inserts a malformed
record into the Win2K Event Viewer snap-ins event log, the viewer can
fail or malicious code can be run on the affected computer. To download
