Microsoft Security Bulletin MS13-007 - Important

Vulnerability in Open Data Protocol Could Allow Denial of Service (2769327)

Published: | Updated:

Version: 1.1

General Information

Executive Summary

This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in the Open Data (OData) protocol. The vulnerability could allow denial of service if an unauthenticated attacker sends specially crafted HTTP requests to an affected site. Firewall best practices and standard default firewall configurations can help protect networks from attacks that originate outside the enterprise perimeter. Best practices recommend that systems that are connected to the Internet have a minimal number of ports exposed.

This security update is rated Important for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1, Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1, and Microsoft .NET Framework 4. It is also rated Important for Management OData IIS Extension when installed on Microsoft Windows Server 2012. For more information, see the subsection, Affected and Non-Affected Software, in this section.

The security update addresses the vulnerability by turning off the WCF Replace function by default. For more information about the vulnerability, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) subsection for the specific vulnerability entry under the next section, Vulnerability Information.
