SMB Information Disclosure Vulnerability

CVE-2006-1315
_______________________________________________________________________________

•       Synopsis

An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Server service that could allow an attacker to retrieve fragments 
of memory from an affected host via the host’s SMB server. 
_______________________________________________________________________________

•       Vulnerable System or Application

Microsoft Windows 2000
Microsoft Windows XP w/ Service Pack 1
Microsoft Windows XP w/ Service Pack 2
Microsoft Windows Server 2003
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 w/ Service Pack 1

_______________________________________________________________________________

•       Vulnerability Information

This issue is caused by the Server protocol driver’s failure to zero out memory before reusing it when constructing SMB 
response messages. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a specially crafted request that when 
processed would result in a response packet being sent that unintentionally contained portions of memory from the 
target host. Note that this vulnerability would not allow an attacker to execute code or to elevate their user rights 
directly. It could be used to produce useful information to try to further compromise the affected system.
