Download Microsoft Security Bulletin MS02-042
Designed and developed for Windows 2000 systems, Microsoft Security Bulleting MS02-042 is a security update that is intended to help users overcome the flaw in management of network connections associated with Windows 2000 systems. Among the various functions offered by the Network Connection Manager in Windows is the handler routine call function, which is executed whenever a network connection is established. As per its implementation design, this function should be executed in the security context of a user. However, there are times when it becomes flawed and executes in the context of an unprivileged user, running the function in the local system. This flaw can be exploited by intrusive users to establish connection with the system, compromising the network’s security.
