A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Microsoft mailslot server service may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.
A mailslot is a temporary mechanism that can facilitate data transfer between hosts. Mailslots messages are limited to 424 bytes, and can use either the TCP or UDP protocol.
A remote unauthenticated attacker could execute unauthenitcated arbitrary code with kernel-level privileges.
