Title:      Cumulative Patch for SQL Server (Q316333)
Date:       02 October 2002
Software:   Microsoft SQL Server 7.0

               Microsoft SQL Server 2000
               Microsoft Desktop Engine (MSDE) 2000
Impact:     Four vulnerabilities, the most serious of which could
               enable an attacker to gain control over an affected
               server.
Max Risk:   Critical
Bulletin:   MS02-056

Issue:
======
This is a cumulative patch that includes the functionality of all
previously released patches for SQL Server 7.0, SQL Server 2000, and

Microsoft Data Engine (MSDE) 1.0, Microsoft Desktop Engine (MSDE)
2000. In addition, it eliminates four newly discovered vulner-
abilities.
*       A buffer overrun in a section of code in SQL Server 2000
       (and MSDE 2000) associated with user authentication. By
       sending a specially malformed login request to an affected
       server, an attacker could either cause the server to fail or
       gain the ability to overwrite memory on the server, thereby
       potentially running code on the server in the security context
       of the SQL Server service. It would not be necessary for the
       user to successfully authenticate to the server or to be able
       to issue direct commands to it in order to exploit the
       vulnerability.
*       A buffer overrun vulnerability that occurs in one of the
       Database Console Commands (DBCCs) that ship as part of SQL
       Server 7.0 and 2000. In the most serious case, exploiting
       this vulnerability would enable an attacker to run code in
       the context of the SQL Server service, thereby giving the
       attacker complete control over all databases on the server.
*       A vulnerability associated with scheduled jobs in SQL Server
       7.0 and 2000. SQL Server allows unprivileged users to create
       scheduled jobs that will be executed by the SQL Server Agent.
       By design, the SQL Server Agent should only perform job
       steps that are appropriate for the requesting user's priv-
       ileges. However, when a job step requests that an output file
       be created, the SQL Server Agent does so using its own priv-
       ileges rather than the job owners privileges. This creates a
       situation in which an unprivileged user could submit a job
       that would create a file containing valid operating system
       commands in another user's Startup folder, or simply over-
       write system files in order to disrupt system operation

The patch also changes the operation of SQL Server, to prevent
non-administrative users from running ad hoc queries against
non-SQL OLEDB data sources. Although the current operation does
not represent a security vulnerability, the new operation makes
it more difficult to misuse poorly coded data providers that might
be installed on the server.

Mitigating Factors:
====================
Unchecked buffer in SQL Server 2000 authentication function:
*       This vulnerability on affects SQL Server 2000 and MSDE 2000.
       Neither SQL Server 7.0 nor MSDE 1.0 are affected.
*       If the SQL Server port (port 1433) were blocked at the firewall,
       the vulnerability could not be exploited from the Internet.
*       Exploiting this vulnerability would allow the attacker to
       escalate privileges to the level of the SQL Server service
       account. By default, the service runs with the privileges of a
       domain user, rather than with system privileges.
Unchecked buffer in Database Console Commands:
*       Exploiting this vulnerability would allow the attacker to
       escalate privileges to the level of the SQL Server service
       account. By default, the service runs with the privileges of a
       domain user, rather than with system privileges.
*       The vulnerability could only be exploited by an attacker who
       could authenticate to an affected SQL Server or has permissions
       to execute queries directly to the server
*       The vulnerability could only be exploited by an attacker who
       could authenticate to an affected SQL Server.
Flaw in output file handling for scheduled jobs:
*       The vulnerability could only be exploited by an attacker who
       could authenticate to an affected SQL server.

Risk Rating:
============
- Internet systems: Critical
- Intranet systems: Critical
- Client systems: None
