Description

The remote host contains a version of the Print Spooler service that is vulnerable to a security flaw that could allow an attacker to execute code on the remote host or crash the spooler service.

An attacker can execute code on the remote host with a NULL session against :

  • Windows 2000

An attacker can crash the remote service with a NULL session against :

  • Windows 2000
  • Windows XP SP1

An attacker needs valid credentials to crash the service against :

  • Windows 2003
  • Windows XP SP2
