SYMPTOMS

Microsoft has released a cumulative patch for Internet Information Server (IIS) 4.0, Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0, and IIS 5.1 that includes updates for the issues that are described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles:
321599 MS02-028: Heap overrun in HTR chunked encoding might enable Web server compromise
319733 MS02-018: April 2002 cumulative patch for Internet Information Services
This patch includes not only previously released security patches, but also fixes for the following newly discovered security vulnerabilities that affect IIS 4.0, 5.0, and 5.1:
  • A privilege elevation vulnerability that affects the way ISAPIs are started when an IIS 4.0, 5.0, or 5.1 server is configured to run them out of process. By design, the hosting process (Dllhost.exe) runs only in the security context of the IWAM_computername account; however, it can actually be made to acquire LocalSystem privileges under certain circumstances, thereby enabling an ISAPI to do likewise.
  • A denial of service vulnerability that results because of a flaw in the way IIS 5.0 and 5.1 allocate memory for WebDAV requests. If a WebDAV request is malformed in a particular way, IIS allocates an extremely large amount of memory on the server. By sending several such requests, an attacker can cause the server to fail.
  • A vulnerability that involves the operation of the script source access permission in IIS 5.0. This permission operates in addition to the typical read/write permissions for a virtual directory, and regulates whether scripts, .ASP files, and executable file types can be uploaded to a write-enabled virtual directory. A typographical error in the table that defines the file types that are subject to this permission omits .COM files from the list of files subject to the permission. As a result, a user needs only write access to upload such a file.
  • A pair of Cross-Site Scripting (CSS) vulnerabilities that affect IIS 4.0, 5.0, and 5.1, and involve the administrative Web page. Each of these vulnerabilities has the same scope and effect: when a user clicks a link on an attacker's Web site, the attacker can relay a request that contains script to a third-party Web site that is running IIS, thereby causing the third-party site's response (which still includes the script) to be sent to the user. The script then renders using the security settings of the third-party site instead of the attacker's site.
Additionally, the patch causes IIS 5.0 and 5.1 to change how frequently the socket backlog list - which, when all connections on a server are allocated, holds the list of pending connection requests - is cleared. The patch changes IIS to clear the list more frequently to make it more resilient to flooding attacks. The backlog monitoring feature is not present in IIS 4.0.

Note These patches do not include fixes for vulnerabilities involving non-IIS products, such as the Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions and Microsoft Index Server, although these products are closely associated with IIS and are typically installed on IIS servers. There is, however, one exception. The fix for the vulnerability that affects Index Server, which is discussed in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS01-033, is included in this patch because of the seriousness of the issue for IIS servers. At the time that this article was written, the Microsoft Security Bulletins that discuss these vulnerabilities are as follows:
Microsoft Security Bulletin MS01-043

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS01-025

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS00-084

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS00-018

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS00-006
All the previously listed fixes and cumulative patches are included in Windows 2000 Service Pack 3. For additional information about the latest service pack for Windows 2000, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
260910 How to obtain the latest Windows 2000 service pack
Note The fixes for the following vulnerabilities that affect IIS 4.0 are not included in the patch because they require administrative action instead of a software change. Administrators must make sure that they not only apply this patch, but also take the administrative action that is described in the following bulletins:
Microsoft Security Bulletin MS00-028

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS00-025

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS99-025 (which discusses the same issue as Microsoft Security Bulletin MS98-004)

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS99-013
