I.DESCRIPTION: 

-------------

 

  Parsing a specially crafted ANI file causes the windows kernel to crash or stop to work

properly. An attacker can crash or freeze a target system if he sends a specially crafted 

ANI file within an HTML page or within an Email.

 

II.DETAILS:

----------

 

  ANI stands for Windows Animated Cursor and manages many images frames. Two vulnerabilities

exist in the Windows kernel when it parses ANI files.

 

  A first vulnerability exists because there is no proper check of the frame number set in the

ANI file header. If the Windows kernel try to parse the ANI file (offset 0x78 in the ANI

file header) and the frame number is set to 0, the kernel will calculate a wrong address to

access and then crash.

 

  A second vulnerability exists because there is (again) no proper check of the rate number

set in the ANI file header. Setting this number to 0 causes the windows kernel to use up to

all of the system resources and then freeze.
