NSFOCUS Security Advisory(SA2000-04)  
Topic£ºMicrosoft Win9x client driver type comparing vulnerability  
Release Date£º August 20, 2000  
Affected System:  
================  
- Microsoft Windows 95  
- Microsoft Windows 98  
- Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition  
Non-affected system£º  
===================  
- Microsoft Windows NT  
- Microsoft Windows 2000  
Impact:   
=========  
NSFOCUS security team has found a security flaw in Microsoft Win9x  
NETBIOS client. Exploitation of this vulnerability, a malicious  
attacker can modify his host file share service and perform DoS attack  
to a Win9x client that visits it.  
Description£º  
============  
When Win9x client accessing NETBIOS file shared services and comparing  
the driver types, if the returned type from server is none of  
below:"£¿£¿£¿£¿£¿"," A£º"," LPT1£º"," COMM"or"IPC"£¬it will lead to  
the sixth result, which is fake cause there are only five of them. So,  
win9x client will get a wrong driver pointer from conversion, transfer  
the control to the wrong driver function address and finally crash.  
Workaround:  
====================  
Don't access the untrusted host's file share service.  
Microsoft has been informed.
