Server Service Denial of Service Vulnerability

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:428

The server driver (srv.sys) in Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 2000 XP and Server 2003 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via an SMB_COM_TRANSACTION SMB message that contains a string without null character termination which leads to a NULL dereference in the ExecuteTransaction function possibly related to an "SMB PIPE" aka the "Mailslot DOS" vulnerability. NOTE: the name "Mailslot DOS" was derived from incomplete initial research; the vulnerability is not associated with a mailslot.
