This is a buffer overrun vulnerability. A malicious user could exploit this vulnerability in either of two ways. In the simplest case, he or she could use the vulnerability to cause the SQL Server service to fail. In the more complex case, he or she could potentially use the vulnerability to run code of his or her choice on the database server. This patch can be applied atop Service Pack 2 on Windows 95/98/ME/NT4.0/2000. NOTE: You must first run this Alpha version of the executable on an Intel-based system to extract the necessary files.
