Windows Client Server Run-time Vulnerability

Q: Windows Client Server Run-time Vulnerability

The Microsoft Blog notes that they are tracking a Proof of Concept exploit. It targets the Client Server Run-Time Subsystem. The blog states that initial indications are that you need to be authenticated before you can take advantage of it. It affects Windows 2000 SP4, Windows Server 2003 SP1, Windows XP SP1, Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista.http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?storyid=1965...The vulnerability is caused due to a double-free error in the handling of HardError messages within WINSRV.DLL...http://secunia.com/advisories/23448/

Preferred Solution: Windows Client Server Run-time Vulnerability

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have 6 computers in a workgroup that need to be synchronized to a workgroup server.  The server is a virtual Win 7 running on a Windows 10 host.  Neither the server or client computers have internet access.  I started the process by configuring
the host to use its CMOS clock as its time source, which seems to have worked. The client computers are not virtual and can communicate with the Win 10 host as I am able to RDP to the host from the clients.  I made the following registry key changes to
get that accomplished.

My organisation has 3 Windows 2003 servers (domain, mail, application). We are having very slow response time between server and client PCs in regards to opening/downloading/saving files from the server and working on software from client PCs that needs to communicate with the server. I am not sure if this was a problem from the day the servers were installed as i was not working here, but it is possible. The PCs are not the issue here as we tried it with different PCs across the years.

Thus i have the following two questions:

1. Could this be helped by increasing the download and upload speed of our connection? we currently have 8mbps download and 1mbps upload speed (this is for each server/pc). We are thinking of increasing it to 10mbps/10mbps and i was wondering if its worth it.

2. What might be the reason for the above problem?

thanks in advance

Hello ,
Im trying to setup a VPN connection and got error 919 , and 629..
I have windows server 2008 R2 configured as VPN server and the client is on Win 7 Ult PC.
- The server is connected to the internet via Wireless LAN only.. I have a netgear wireless modem/router...
- I enabled RRAS on the server and created a user and on the AD I Allow Access in the dial in Tab.
- I created a new VPN connection on the client PC (WIN 7 ) and in the address I put the IP of the server and then the user name and password .then when I connect I got the error 919 and tried again with error 629.
- I can ping the server and the server can ping the client. Im trying on internal network.
- I enabled the REQUEST TO PING ON WAN in the netgear
- The firewall is OFF on both server and client , but still cant connect.....!!
Thanks in Advace for help and if any specific info needed please let me know.


Please see the following blog.
Troubleshooting Vista VPN problems - Routing and Remote Access Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs 
For error 919, the suggestion is:
Configure your server to allow clients to connect with MS-CHAPv2 as the authentication method. Update your VPN client connection settings to use MSCHAPv2 as the authentication method.
If you have a third-party VPN server which does not support MS-CHAPv2 as an authentication method and supports only MS-CHAPv1, you will need to use either CHAP or PAP to connect from the Windows Vista VPN client until the server you use starts supporting
MS-CHAPv2.Please remember to click ?Mark as Answer? on the post that helps you, and to click ?Unmark as Answer? if a marked post does not actually answer your question. This can be beneficial to other community members reading the thread. ?

Okay so far I've setup windows built-in VPN server (using this GUIDE), forwarded ports on my router to port 1723 to my computers local IP and enabled PPTP passthrough. Created 2 rules in windows firewall to allow both TCP 1723 and GRE 47. I've even turned windows firewall off to see if I could connect that way. Still nothing. My phone will say connecting for about a 50 seconds then disconnect. Contacted Motorola and they said that the router will forward GRE with PPTP passthrough enabled, thta its most likely a Windows issue. I'm using a Galaxy S4 and the router is a Motorola SBG6580. I'm totally lost. No errors or anything from android or Windows.

Hi guys,

I created a VPN server using the Windows XP Pro network assistant. I would like to known, if anyone of you would know what registry key I need to edit to allow this VPN server to accept more than 1 simultanous connection.

If I create a VPN server using the network assistant in Windows Server 2003, by default it will allow multiple connections. But I do pocess a legal copy of Windows Server 2003, so I don't want to use it.

Since Windows Server 2003 use the same VPN server/client than Windows XP Pro, I presume this limitation is due to a registry entry. I would like to known which one it is so I could allow my Windows XP Pro to do the same.

Thanks in advance,

For the first option, I couldn't couldn't find the necessary options.

For the second option, I've already set my settings right.
But, still my windows 8 time was showing wrong.

I had to change my BIOS time to make the necessary change to Windows time.

So, what happened here. Can windows 8 override BIOS time? or How can I set Windows time to Internet time server even if my BIOS time is wrong.

Thank you for your help.

A:Synchronize windows time with internet time server.

Yes the OS can override the BIOS time. It uses UTC to update. Check your time zone in Date & Time tab, to see if that is why your time is off.

Hello everyone, I've looked around at other threads related to my issue, and I can't seem to find a correct answer.
I have a computer lab that I've recently installed a Windows 7 Enterprise image onto 35 Dell Optiplex computers (most are 380's, a few older 360's).
I created the image using MDT2010 and used one of the 380's as a reference.
All has been well for about a month or two but recently 6 computers are giving me Windows Update errors with the error code of 80080005.
I have a WSUS 3.0 SP2 server running, and all of my other computers seem to be getting their updates just fine.  WSUS has the problematic computers in it's database, but it shows that they haven't checked in for "x" days.
I have Avast 4.8 Professional installed, I have OpenDNS configured to block bad websites, ____, etc. and I also use an Untangle server to prevent access to bad websites.  I've ran a Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware scan on the affected computers, as well
as Windows Defender scan, and Windows Live OneCare scans, and all have found no malicious software.
I have also tried resetting the Windows update service as described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058 as well as a script that supposedly does the same thing, but also resets all previous
update events, but I can't find the script source right now (I had ran it last week, and it didn't work).

We have bound several Macs to the Microsoft AD domain. One of the reasons for doing this was to achieve a single sign-on environment. ie no need to reautenticate when connecting to one of the file servers etc.
The problem we have is that when we attempt to connect to the Win2003 fileserver using AFP we are still being prompted to reauthenticate wheras if we use SMB instead it connects staright away. We have noticed that the SMB connection works straight off as the Kerberos Domain Controller (KDC) issues the OSX user with a kerberos ticket which is viewable in the Kerberos.app on the Mac.
Does anybody have any ideas that may help with this ?

Okay let me give you all the facts up until about 6 months we ran hardcoded PC's across the board. We then got more and more laptops and are finding it easier to now run DHCP. One issue I have is we are running DHCP off a Cicso router and not off the Windows 2003 server. Also remember we have a bunch of subnets as each location is on its own vlan (while this does not matter the same problem is happening with the local LAN with the hosting servers).

I just now went into DNS and noticed that our records are not being updated within DNS. We had some records that are in our forward lookup zones that were 3 months old + that have no computername any longer even on the network. In the reverse lookup zones there is more of the same where we have multiple records with the same IP.

This is happening in both forward and reverse lookup zones and is on 2 different DNS servers. Now scavenging was set for the forward lokup zones for 7 days abut the reverse lookup zone was NOT enabled. We went ahead and enabled it and then I did a forced Scavenge Stale resource records on both servers at the same time.

This did part of what I wanted but did not fix the entire problem. In the forward lookup zones the A records that were stale are now gone (at least the main ones that caused me to notice the problem to begin with). In the reverse lookup zones there are still a TON of duplicates - PTR records for 2 different PC's on the same IP and PTR records for 1 PC on 2 different IP's

A:Windows 2003 DNS Server - Client Records not being deleted.

Hello Stumped!

I am having the same problem in my environment with my reverse lookup zones. I have duplicate PTR records and scavenging does not seem to be working for the reverse lookup zones. I am at the point now where I am considering deleting my reverse lookup zone and recreating. I just have to answer a few questions about how I am going to recreate the reverse lookup entries that were created from manual forward entries. I would hate to have to do that part manually.

At any rate, I believe I can at least speak to your question regarding a Cisco device being used for dynamic DNS.

You're Windows 2000/XP clients should register their forward lookup name themselves. The DHCP server registers the PTR records on the client&#8217;s behalf. The client has the option of requesting to update both records; however, it is only responsible for actually updating the forward lookup zone. The reverse lookup zone in a Microsoft scenario is always updated by the DHCP server.

I have not been able to determine that Cisco routers actually support dynamic DNS. I have seen some documentation for security appliances that make it possible (but I don't think they work with MS DNS)

As far as what I've found from Cisco, they sell a DNS/DHCP solution called Cisco Network Registrar which supports dynamic DNS. My suggestion would be to pick one solution or the other. (I have no experience with CNR and I have no idea what it costs)

SQL Server 7.0 and 2000 provide a number of functions that enable
database queries to generate text messages. In some cases, the
functions create a text message and store it in a variable; in
others, the functions directly display the message. Two
vulnerabilities associated with these functions have been discovered.

The first vulnerability results because of a flaw in the functions
themselves. Several of the functions don't adequately verify that the
requested text will fit into the buffer that's supplied to hold it. A
buffer overrun could occur as a result, and could be used either to
run code in the security context of the SQL Server service or to
cause the SQL Server service to fail. SQL Server can be configured to
run in various security contexts, and by default runs as a domain
user. The precise privileges the attacker could gain would depend on
the specific security context that the service runs in.

The second vulnerability results because of a format string
vulnerability in the C runtime functions that the SQL Server
functions call when installed on Windows NT(r) 4.0, Windows(r) 2000
or Windows XP. Although format string vulnerabilities often can be
exploited to run code of the attacker's choice, that is not true in
this case. Because of the specific way this vulnerability occurs, the
C Runtime code would always be overrun with the same values
regardless of the attacker's inputs. As a result, this vulnerability
could only be used as a denia... Read more

SQL Server 7.0 and 2000 provide for extended stored procedures,
which are external routines written in a programming language such
as C. These procedures appear to users as normal stored procedures
and are executed in the same way. SQL Server 7.0 and 2000 include
a number of extended stored procedures which are used for various
helper functions

Several of the Microsoft-provided extended stored procedures have
a flaw in common - namely, they fail to perform input validation
correctly, and are susceptible to buffer overruns as a result
exploiting the flaw could enable an attacker to either cause the
SQL Server service to fail, or to cause code to run in the security
context in which SQL Server is running. SQL Server can be
configured to run in various security contexts, and by default
runs as a domain user. The precise privileges the attacker could
gain would depend on the specific security context that the
service runs in.

An attacker could exploit this vulnerability in one of two ways.
Firstly, the attacker could attempt to load and execute a database
query that calls one of the affected functions. Secondly, if a
web-site or other database front-end were configured to access
and process arbitrary queries, it could be possible for the
attacker to provide inputs that would cause the query to call
one of the functions in question with the appropriate
malformed parameters.

I am running a Windows 2003 server with 2 NICS in my office. The internal LAN in the office is on 192.168.1.xxx, subnet mask

The Second NIC installed for VPN has IP address: I have configure RAS to work on the Second NIC. It uses DHCP to give out IP addresses to VPN clients in the 192.168.0.xxx range.

My home network and Vista client machine are on 192.168.15.xxx.

I can connect and register my Vista client machine on the network, but I cannot ping any of the computers, including the server, in the office network. I believe I have to set up some sort of a static route or a classless route, or something like that, so that the VPN client machine (192.168.0.xxx) can hop over to the office network (192.168.1.xxx).

Can anyone help?

By the way, I know that the router is passing the traffic correctly because if I set up RAS to distribute an address to the VPN client in the 192.168.1.xxx range using the existing NIC (not the second NIC in the server), everything works fine.

I have been given a PC with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
This was a client PC from a small old Windows Home Server 2011 system which has now been dismantled as the server PC failed.
My unit works fine but I cannot remove the irritating Server client items from it - Launchpad and Alert Services etc etc.
Have looked everywhere on the disk but cannot find any uninstall file anywhere.
All the relevant files seem to be in the ?Program Files?, ?Windows Server? , ?Bin? folder but nothing found there. No separate uninstalling prog will work either.
Have considered starting up the PC in Safe Mode, physically removing the Windows Server folder and contents then running a registry cleaner to tidy up the loose ends.
Am concerned that this might make the PC unstable so ask if anyone has any useful suggestions. For now I have worked through the Start Up process and inhibited the ones considered relevant. Also CCleaner has stopped the Launchpad.This has worked but would like to permanently remove the unwanted items.

A:Removal of Windows Home Server 2011 client software

No one has supplied any suggestions as to my programme removal so decided to risk it and do it myself as described.
Backed up whole HD plus registry, restarted in basic Safe Mode then physically removed all traces of WHS 2011 in file system.
Emptied Recycle Bin then restarted as normal.
No disasters occurred so used CCleaner and Advanced Uninstaller PRO. They mopped up the loose ends and everything seems to be fine now. Job done!
I suppose the same process could be used for most difficult to remove items.

The Client Connect to Windows server 2012 Essentials not working for 1 PC on a network. It didn't work a year ago when I set up the domain and the other 8 PC's connected, but the HDD died so I did a fresh install in Window 7 Pro SP1 and put in all the updates
and tried to connect agian.
The error is that it can't find the server.
I've tried everything else I've seen on the forums, IP v4 only, DNS is only set to the Windows Domain server.

below is the log for the connect attempt, does anyone have any ideas?

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

I've seen the complaints about this problem but with no clear resolution. There are some hot fixes listed that may help, updating to Windows 7 SP1 is supposed to help in some cases but nothing seems for certain.

No way for me to recreate this problem but apparently others have the same problem.

There is a process running on my computer called csrss.exe
I went to http://www.processlibrary.com and looked it up and came up with 2 different things. One says it is a Trojan and needs to be removed. The same exact process name also says it is Microsoft client server runtime server and SHOULD NOT be removed.
How I am supposed to tell the difference so I do not make a mistake by either leaving it alone or removing it???

There is a remotely exploitable vulnerability in the way that Apache web servers (or other web servers based on their source code) handle data encoded in chunks. This vulnerability is present by default in configurations of Apache web server versions 1.2.2 and above, 1.3 through 1.3.24, and versions 2.0 through 2.0.36. The impact of this vulnerability is dependent upon the software version and the hardware platform the server is running on.

Systems Affected

SQL Server 2000 introduces the ability to host multiple instances of
SQL Server on a single physical machine. Each instance operates for
all intents and purposes as though it was a separate server. However,
the multiple instances cannot all use the standard SQL Server session
port (TCP 1433). While the default instance listens on TCP port 1433,
named instances listen on any port assigned to them. The SQL Server
Resolution Service, which operates on UDP port 1434, provides a way
for clients to query for the appropriate network endpoints to use for
a particular SQL Server instance.

There are three security vulnerabilities here. The first two are
buffer overruns. By sending a carefully crafted packet to the
Resolution Service, an attacker could cause portions of system memory
(the heap in one case, the stack in the other) to be overwritten.
Overwriting it with random data would likely result in the failure of
the SQL Server service; overwriting it with carefully selected data
could allow the attacker to run code in the security context of the
SQL Server service.

The third vulnerability is a denial of service vulnerability. SQL
uses a keep-alive mechanism to distinguish between active and passive
instances. It is possible to create a keep-alive packet that, when
sent to the Resolution Service, will cause SQL Server 2000 to respond
with the same information. An attacker who created such a packet,
spoofed the source address so that it appeared to come from a one SQL

My friend and i at Univsersity have to create a Windows 2000 server and then make a computer using Windows 98 able to connect to it and access files in shared folders.
This is all done using software called VMWare, this prevents us using real computers do to the work, in the probably event we would break them.

The problem is we get stuck near the end of the documentation we are given.
When the user on the 98 machine tries to log in it just says invalid or unknown domain or it might even be password, im not sure at the minute, more likely to be domain as we set up the user accounts ourselfs.

The teacher asked us to try the ping command, to try to connect to each other.
My friend on the 98 machine could ping himself and my machine,
i could pinghost (my machine) but when i tried to ping the 98 machine it said request timed out.
This seemed odd as he could ping my machine but i could not ping his, the only thing i can think of about that is outbound connections have been blocked, but we have been told security is disabled as default on Win2000 servers.

Sorry about the large text file, it wont let me add RTF files on here, i tried to bold the part we are stuck on but it just changed the whole text of everything.
We are stuck on from :
7. Configure a Windows 98 Client
(its near the bottom of the file)

Any help would be appreciated.

Server has been great and online for about 7 months without issue.  Three times over the last two weeks, all clients' mapped drives just drop and Windows Explorer hangs...  I am not able to disconnect drives via command prompt, nor remap drives
via command prompt.  However, I can ping the server and remote desktop to the server perfectly.  No errors in logs on workstations or server.  Affects all workstations (60+ running Windows 7 Pro) simultaneously.  Client mappings to
other servers (Windows 2008 R2) running on the same switch are unaffected.  Reboot the 2012 server and you can reconnect to mapped drives by clicking on them in Windows Explorer.  Any ideas?

Hi I'm working on a client/server with the Java programming language and trying to figure out how to protect my server. With my current Virus/Firewall protection suite theres nothing I can do to keep out unwanted Java applications on the port I choose to allow the Java SE Binary through for clients accessing the server application. ESET Smart Security 4 is what I am using. Does anybody know of a security suite that would allow only a specific Java application to get through the firewall? I'm not to sure on this subject because my firewall is identifying any Java application as only the "Java SE Binary" and not I'm sure if you can even really name your Java application like you would something you would write in C++. Any information would be appreciated, thank you.

A friend is moving his business, and the new business park that he's setting up shop in does not have anyway to get any wired internet to his building, excluding a T1 line, which he can't justify the cost of.

One windows 7 machine acts as the server, primarily for Quickbooks database, and there are two other windows 7 machines that are clients, reading off said database.

He's getting one of those usb dongles for wireless internet service, for the server only (the other two computers will be tethered to a smartphone for internet for QB and windows updates periodically).

They do NOT want to share the servers wireless connection to the other machines.

My only concern was if the server will continue to try to check the LAN for internet connectivity, or will it check both network connections when one fails, or is there a setting I can tell them to change to ensure it knows to go to the wireless dongle for internet all the time, without interfering with the workstations talking to the server over the LAN to get to the database?

The setup at the old office was business class DSL, they are using a relatively new Linksys router, which had the DSL authentication information.

Thank you!

I managed to find a solution this morning, for anyone that's interested, the whole article is here: Multiple Network Connections at the Same Time on Windows | Ivan Zlatev

But the short answer is, under the advanced properties of TCP/IP v4, uncheck automatic metric, set your internet to a value of 1, and the LAN to a value of 9999.

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?

A:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

This patch eliminates two newly discovered vulnerabilities affecting
SQL Server 2000 and MSDE 2000:

- A buffer overrun vulnerability that occurs in several Database
Consistency Checkers (DBCCs) that ship as part of SQL Server 2000.
DBCCs are command console utilities that allow maintenance and
other operations to be performed on a SQL Server. While many of
these are executable only by sysadmin, some are executable by
members of the db_owner and db_ddladmin roles as well. In the most
serious case, exploiting this vulnerability would enable an
attacker to run code in the context of the SQL Server service,
thereby giving the attacker complete control over all databases
on the server.

- A SQL injection vulnerability that occurs in two stored
procedures used in database replication. One of these can only be
run by users who have been assigned the db_owner role; the other,
due to a permissions error, could be run by any user who could log
onto the server interactively. Exploiting the vulnerability could
enable an attacker to run operating system commands on the server,
but is subject to significant mitigating factors as discussed

Maximum Severity Rating: Moderate

Affected Software:

Microsoft SQL Server 2000.
Microsoft Desktop Engine (MSDE) 2000
