Patch Available for "Malformed TCP/IP Print Request" Vulnerability

Summary
=======
Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates a security
vulnerability in the TCP/IP Printing Services for Microsoft(r)
Windows NT(r) 4.0 and Windows(r) 2000. If this service is installed,
the vulnerability could allow a malicious user to  disrupt printing
services.

Issue
=====
TCP/IP Printing Services is an RFC 1179-compliant printing service
designed for environments that use the Berkeley Remote  Printing
protocols, also known as LPD and LPR. (In Windows 2000, TCP/IP
Printing Services are also known as Print Services  for Unix). A
specially-malformed print request could cause TCPSVC.EXE to crash,
which would not only prevent the server from  providing printing
services, but also would stop several other services, most importantly
DHCP. Any affected services could  be put back into service by
restarting them; it would not be necessary to reboot the machine.

It is important to note that TCP/IP Printing Services is different
from the native Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 printing  services.
TCP/IP Printing Services is not installed by default, and the
vulnerability at hand here would not allow a  malicious user to
disrupt printing via the native Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000
printing services.
