Vulnerability Note VU#698564
Microsoft CIS and RPC over HTTP Proxy components fail to properly handle responses
A vulnerability in a Microsoft HTTP Proxy component may lead to a denial of service.
Microsoft's COM Internet Sevices (CIS) and Remote Procedure Call (RPC) over HTTP Proxy contain a vulnerability that could permit an attacker to cause a denial of service. When a forwarded request is passed over either of these components to the backend system, an attacker may be able to reply to the request with a specially crafted response. This could cause the vulnerable components to stop accepting future requests. This vulnerability affects the following systems:
A remote attacker may be able to stop the vulnerable component from accepting messages. This would lead to a denial of service.
