Issue:
======
The Windows 2000 Terminal Service and Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Server
Edition contains a memory leak in one of the functions that processes
incoming Remote Data Protocol data via port 3389. Each time an RDP
packet containing a specific type of malformation is processed, the
memory leak depletes overall server memory by a small amount.

If an attacker sent a sufficiently large quantity of such data to an
affected machine, he could deplete the machine's memory to the point
where response time would be slowed or the machine's ability to
respond
would be stopped altogether. All system services would be affected,
including but not limited to terminal services. Normal operation
could
be restored by rebooting the machine.

Mitigating Factors:
====================
- Normal firewalling could be used to prevent an attacker from
exploiting
  this vulnerability from the Internet. Specifically, blocking port
3389
  would prevent an attacker from delivering data to the affected
service,
  thereby preventing him from exploiting the vulnerability.

- There is no capability to compromise data or usurp privileges via
the
  vulnerability.

Patch Availability:
===================
- A patch is available to fix this vulnerability. Please read the
  Security Bulletin
  http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms01-040.asp
  for information on obtaining this patch.
