Patch Available for "DTS Password" Vulnerability

Originally posted: June 14, 2000

Summary
=======
Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates a security
vulnerability in a component that ships with Microsoft(r) SQL  Server
7.0. If the component is configured improperly, the vulnerability
could allow passwords to be compromised.

Frequently asked questions regarding this vulnerability
and the patch can be found at
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/fq00-041.asp

Issue
=====
Data Transformation Service (DTS) packages in SQL Server 7.0 allow
database administrators to create a package that will  perform a
particular database action at regular intervals. As part of the
creation of a DTS package, the administrator  provides the account
name and password under which the action should be taken. However, the
password can be retrieved by  programmatically interrogating the
package's Properties dialogue.

The vulnerability could only occur if several best practices have not
been followed:
- The creator of the DTS package chose to supply a username
  and password instead of using Windows Authentication.
- The DTS package was created without restricting who can edit it.
- The SQL Server administrator allowed Guest access to the SQL
  Server MSDB database.
