Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator DoS
22th Apr 2002 [SBWID-5294]

	Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator DoS


	Windows 2000


	In Peter Gründl [] of KPMG Danemark advisory [2002015] :

	If an attacker sends 20200 null characters to the MSDTC  service,  which
	listens on TCP port 3372, server ressources are allocated  poorly.  This
	attack can  result  in  MSDTC.EXE  spiking  at  100%  cpu  usage,  MSDTC
	refusing connections and kernel ressources being exhausted.


	Get MS patch MS02-018.
