Windows Server 2003
The specified Windows
platforms contain three vulnerabilities that could lead to privilege
elevation and one vulnerability that could lead to denial of service
conditions on affected systems. The privilege
elevation issues are due to the way Windows processes certain fonts and
access requests. The nature of denial of service condition was not
explained by Microsoft in any amount of detail that could reveal what
might cause the problem.
Microsoft has issued a
