MS02-026: Unchecked buffer in ASP.NET worker process (Japanese)

View products that this article applies to.

This article was previously published under Q322298

↑ Back to the top


A buffer overrun vulnerability exists in Microsoft ASP.NET. An attacker who was able to successfully exploit this vulnerability could cause the application that is running on the Web server to restart. Additionally, although Microsoft has not been able to demonstrate it, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause code to run on the Web server. The code could run in the security context of the ASP.NET worker process (Aspnet_wp.exe), which uses an unprivileged account by default.

This vulnerability affects only ASP.NET applications that use StateServer mode to manage session state information. StateServer mode is not the default mode. Finally, this vulnerability affects only those applications that use StateServer mode and that also use cookies. This vulnerability does not affect applications that use StateServer mode without cookies.

This vulnerability occurs because a function that processes cookie data in the ASPState service cannot properly check the length of the cookies that are passed to it.
