Since this buffer overflow overwrites kernel memory, it could be possible that members of the Network Configuration Operator group exploit this and take control over the operating system without any restriction.
This buffer overflow could be exploited to inject code, hence compromising client security.
"We have worked together with Microsoft Security Response Center in Redmond since October 2008 to locate, classify and fix this bug. Microsoft will ship a fix for this exploit with the next Vista service pack."
First, you have to be a member of Network Configuration Operation group, then to know how to exploit this flaw.
This group is empty by default and only Admin can change that.
1st off i heard about this 5 weeks ago.(1st on news site then on Security Now)
2nd it is not restricted to Vista. it effects ALL OS's(Linux,apple,Win.,ect)
3rd IT CAN NOT BE FIXED(with out redesign in TCP/IP). It is a fundamental flaw in the design TCP/IP
I cant wait tell they redesign TCP/IP(internet) and make it go faster.
Yeah I'm not too worried about it at this point.
