Microsoft Security Bulletin MS14-044 - Important
Vulnerabilities in SQL Server Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (2984340)

Published: August 12, 2014

Version: 1.0

This security update resolves two privately reported vulnerabilities in 
Microsoft SQL Server (one in SQL Server Master Data Services and the other in
the SQL Server relational database management system). The more severe of 
these vulnerabilities, affecting SQL Server Master Data Services, could allow
elevation of privilege if a user visits a specially crafted website that 
injects a client-side script into the user's instance of Internet Explorer. In
all cases, an attacker would have no way to force users to view the 
attacker-controlled content. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users
to take action, typically by getting them to click a link in an email message
or in an Instant Messenger message that takes them to the attacker's website,
or by getting them to open an attachment sent through email.

This security update is rated Important for supported editions of Microsoft 
SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 3, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 2, 
and Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1; it is also rated Important for 
Microsoft SQL Server 2014 for x64-based Systems.

Affected Software

SQL Server 2008

SQL Server 2008 R2

SQL Server 2012

SQL Server 2014

user. To view this vulnerability as a standard entry in the Common 
Vulnerabilities and Exposures list, see CVE-2014-1820.

Microsoft SQL Server Stack Overrun Vulnerability - CVE-2014-4061
