Patch Available for "Undelimited .HTR Request" and "File Fragment
Reading via .HTR" Vulnerabilities

Originally Posted: May 10, 2000

Summary
=======
Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates two security
vulnerabilities in Microsoft(r) Internet Information Server. The
vulnerabilities could, respectively, be used to slow an affected web
server's response or to obtain the source code of  certain types of
files under very restricted conditions.

Frequently asked questions regarding these vulnerabilities
and the patch can be found at
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/fq00-031.asp

Issue
=====
This patch eliminates two security vulnerabilities that are unrelated
except by virtue of the fact that both exist in the  ISAPI extension
that provides web-based password administration via .HTR scripts.
- The "Undelimited .HTR Request" vulnerability is a denial
  of service vulnerability. If a malicious user provided a
  password change request that was missing an expected
  delimiter, the algorithm would conduct an unbounded search.
  This would prevent it from servicing additional .HTR requests,
  and could also slow the overall response of the server.
- The ".HTR File Fragment Reading" vulnerability could allow
  fragments of certain types of files to be read by providing a
  malformed request that would cause the .HTR processing to be
  applied to them. However, the vulnerability could only be
  exploited under extremely restrictive conditions, and the
  most valuable data in the files would be the least likely to
  actually appear in the fragments sent to the user.

Neither of these vulnerabilities would allow data to be added, deleted
or changed on the server, nor would they allow any  administrative
control on the server to be usurped. Although .HTR files are used to
allow web-based password administration,  neither of these
vulnerabilities involve any weakness in password handling. Also, if
security best practices have been  followed, and unneeded script
mappings have been removed, many customers will have removed the .HTR
script mapping and thus  be unaffected by either vulnerability.
