- ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Title: Buffer Overrun in SmartHTML Interpreter Could Allow Code Execution (Q324096) Released: 25 September 2002 Software: FrontPage Server Extensions 2000 and 2002 Impact: Denial of service or privilege elevation Max Risk: Critical Bulletin: MS02-053 Microsoft encourages customers to review the Security Bulletin at: - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Issue: ====== The SmartHTML Interpreter (shtml.dll) is part of the FrontPage Server Extensions (FPSE), and provides support for web forms and other FrontPage-based dynamic content. The interpreter contains a flaw that could be exposed when processing a request for a particulartype of web file, if the request had certain specific characteristics. This flaw affects the two versions of FrontPage Server Extensions differently. On FrontPage Server Extensions 2000, such a request would cause the interpreter to consume most or all CPU availability until the web service was restarted. An attacker could use this vulnerability to conduct a denial of service attack against an affected web server. On FrontPage Server Extensions 2002, the same type of request could cause a buffer overrun, potentially allowing an attacker to run code of his choice. Mitigating Factors: ==================== - - The IIS Lockdown Tool, if used to configure a static web server, disables the SmartHTML Interpreter. Servers on which this has been done could not be affected by the vulnerability. - - FrontPage Server Extensions install on IIS 4.0, 5.0 and 5.1 by default, but can be uninstalled if desired. Servers on which this has been done could not be affected by the vulnerability. Risk Rating: ============ - Internet systems: Critical - Intranet systems: Moderate - Client systems: None Patch Availability: =================== - A patch is available to fix this vulnerability. Please read the Security Bulletin at for information on obtaining this patch.
