We have discovered a critical security vulnerability in all recent versions
of Microsoft operating systems. The vulnerability affects default
installations of Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP as well as
Windows 2003 Server.

This is a buffer overflow vulnerability that exists in an integral component
of any Windows operating system, the RPC interface implementing Distributed
Component Object Model services (DCOM). In a result of implementation error
in a function responsible for instantiation of DCOM objects, remote attackers
can obtain unauthorized access to vulnerable systems.

it has awarded a five-year, $90 million enterprise agreement to Microsoft

newly created department, which has merged parts of 22 different agencies
into one entity.
