MS Warns of Attacks Targeting the Windows Service Isolation Feature

Quote:

Microsoft has issued a Security Advisory designed to inform customers of the potential attacks targeting the Windows Service Isolation, a feature which is included into all supported Windows operating systems, including Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

According to the Redmond company, a problem has been identified in the manner in which the NetworkService token can be received and leveraged in association with RPC calls, via the Windows Telephony Application Programming Interfaces (TAPI) transaction facility.

Microsoft insists that this issue does not require a security bulletin to be patched, and that customers can already access an update that will bulletproof their systems against attacks.
