Microsoft IIS Device File Local DoS Vulnerability

by platon on July 8th, 2001 Microsoft IIS is prone to denial of service attacks by local users. This issue is exploitable if the local attacker can create an .asp file which makes calls to various devices names. The local attacker must of course possess the privileges required to create such files...

The end result of exploiting this vulnerability is that the server will crash and a denial of services will occur. The affected services must be restarted to regain normal functionality.

This vulnerability was submitted to BugTraq on July 4th, 2001 by VIPER_SV /nerf/team/ <[email protected]> of NERF Security gr0up.
