Patch Available for "Service Control Manager Named Pipe
Impersonation" Vulnerability

Originally posted: August 02, 2000

Summary
=======
Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates a security
vulnerability in Microsoft(r) Windows 2000(r). The vulnerability
could allow a user logged onto a Windows 2000 machine from the
keyboard to become an administrator on the machine.

Frequently asked questions regarding this vulnerability
and the patch can be found at
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/fq00-053.asp

Issue
=====
The Service Control Manager (services.exe) is an administrative tool
provided in Windows 2000 that allows system services  (Server,
Workstation, Alerter, ClipBook, etc.) to be created or modified. The
SCM creates a named pipe for each service as it  starts, however,
should a malicious program predict and create the named pipe for a
specific service before the service  starts, the program could
impersonate the privileges of the service. This could allow the
malicious program to run in the  context of the given service, with
either specific user or LocalSystem privileges.

The primary risk from this vulnerability is that a malicious user
could exploit this vulnerability to gain additional  privileges on
the local machine. A malicious user would require the ability to log
onto the target machine interactively and  run arbitrary programs in
order to exploit this vulnerability, and as a result, workstations
and terminal servers would be at  greatest risk.
