Patch Available for
"Still Image Service Privilege Escalation" Vulnerability
Originally posted: September 6, 2000
====================================

Summary
=======
Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates a security
vulnerability in Microsoft(r) Windows 2000. 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/fq00-065.asp

Issue
=====
An unchecked buffer exists in the 'Still Image Service' on Windows
2000 hosts. A locally logged-on user can execute malicious code that
will use the still image service to escalate their permissions equal
to that of the Still Image Service, namely, LocalSystem.

The Still Image Service is not installed by default, but is
automatically installed, via plug-n-play, when a user attaches a
still image device (i.e. digital camera, scanner, etc.) to a Windows
2000 host.
