II. Impact

   A remote, unauthenticated attacker may exploit VU#283646 to gain
   unauthorized access to secured content on an ASP.NET server.

   Exploitation of VU#416001, VU#698835, VU#259890, VU#817368,
   VU#388984, VU#130433, VU#652537, VU#597889, VU#927889, VU#356600,
   VU#580299, VU#843771, and VU#820427 would permit a remote attacker
   to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable Windows system.

   Exploitation of VU#340409, VU#356600, and VU#823971 will have
   impacts similar to cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. For more
   information about cross-site scripting, please see CERT Advisory
   CA-2000-02.

   A remote attacker could use VU#939074 to retrieve the names of
   users who have open connections to a shared Windows resource.


III. Solution

Apply a patch

   Microsoft has provided the patches for these vulnerabilities in the
   Security Bulletins and on Windows Update.
