Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-062 - Important

Vulnerability in Windows Internet Printing Service Could Allow Remote Code
Execution (953155)

   Published: October 14, 2008

   Version: 1.0

General Information

Executive Summary

   This update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in the Windows
   Internet Printing Service that could allow remote code execution in
   the context of the current user. If a user is logged on with
   administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited
   this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system.
   An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data;
   or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are
   configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less
   impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

   This update is rated Important for all supported editions of Microsoft
   Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server
   2008. For more information, see the subsection, Affected and
   Non-Affected Software, in this section.

   The security update addresses this vulnerability by changing the way
   that memory is allocated within the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP)
   service. 

   Recommendation. Microsoft recommends that customers apply the update
   at the earliest opportunity.
