Patch Available for Multiple LPC and LPC Ports Vulnerabilities

Originally posted: October 03, 2000

Summary
=======
Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates several security
vulnerabilities in Microsoft(r) Windows NT(r) 4.0 and  Windows(r)
2000. The vulnerabilities could allow a range of effects, from denial
of service attacks to, in some cases,  privilege elevation.

Frequently asked questions regarding this vulnerability and the
patch can be found at
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/fq00-070.asp.

Issue
=====
Several vulnerabilities have been identified in the Windows NT 4.0
and Windows 2000 implementations of LPC and LPC ports:
- The "Invalid LPC Request" vulnerability, which affects only
  Windows NT 4.0. By levying an invalid LPC request, it would
  be possible to make the affected system fail.
- The "LPC Memory Exhaustion" vulnerability, which affects both
  Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000. By levying spurious LPC
  requests, it could be possible to increase the number of
  queued LPC messages to the point where kernel memory would
  be depleted.
- The "Predictable LPC Message Identifier" vulnerability,
  which affects both Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000. Any
  process that knows the identifier of an LPC message can
  access it; however, the identifiers can be predicted. In the
  simplest case, a malicious user could access other process'
  LPC ports and feed them random data as a denial of service
  attack. In the worst case, it could be possible under certain
  conditions to send bogus requests to a privileged process in
  order to gain additional local privileges
- A new variant of the previously-reported "Spoofed LPC Port
  Request" vulnerability. (For more information, please see
  http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms00-003.asp).
  This vulnerability affects Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000,
  and could, under a very restricted set of conditions, allow
  a malicious user to create a process that would run under
  the security context of an already-running process,
  potentially including System processes.

Because LPC can only be used on the local machine, none of these
vulnerabilities could be exploited remotely. Instead, a  malicious
user could only exploit them on machines that he could log onto
interactively. Typically, workstations and terminal  servers would be
chiefly at risk, because, if normal security practices have been
followed, normal users will not be allowed  to log onto critical
servers interactively. This also means that, even in the worst case,
the vulnerability would only confer  additional local - not domain -
privileges on the malicious user.
