[1]The default FTP Service for this operating system

Why was this bulletin revised on March 8, 2011? 
Microsoft clarified the Affected Software to include Windows 7 for 32-bit Systems Service Pack 1, Windows 7 for x64-based Systems Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems Service Pack 1, and Windows Server 2008 R2 for Itanium-based Systems Service Pack 1.

Customers of the original release version of Windows 7 for 32-bit Systems, Windows 7 for x64-based Systems, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems, and Windows Server 2008 R2 for Itanium-based Systems, who have already applied this security update do not need to take any action. Customers who have updated these operating systems with the corresponding Service Pack 1 need to apply this security update.

I have IIS installed but have not enabled FTP. Do I need to apply this update? 
This vulnerability only affects systems on which the listed versions of FTP Service is enabled. If an affected version of FTP Service is installed but not enabled, the update will still be offered through automatic updating.

How can I verify which version of the FTP Service is installed on my system? 
On Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, if ftpsvc.dll exists in the %SystemRoot%\system32\inetsrv directory, then the system contains a version of FTP Service affected by this vulnerability (Microsoft FTP Service 7.0 or Microsoft FTP Service 7.5). If the system contains ftpsvc2.dll in this directory, that indicates the presence of Microsoft FTP Service 6.0 on the system, which is not affected by this vulnerability.

Is my system affected by this vulnerability if the FTP Service is set up to disable anonymous authentication? 
Yes. This vulnerability occurs before authentication, so a malicious client can compromise a vulnerable system even if it is configured to not allow anonymous authentication.

Where are the file information details? 
Refer to the reference tables in the Security Update Deployment section for the location of the file information details.

I am using an older release of the software discussed in this security bulletin. What should I do? 
The affected software listed in this bulletin have been tested to determine which releases are affected. Other releases are past their support life cycle. For more information about the product lifecycle, visit the Microsoft Support Lifecycle Web site.

It should be a priority for customers who have older releases of the software to migrate to supported releases to prevent potential exposure to vulnerabilities. To determine the support lifecycle for your software release, see Select a Product for Lifecycle Information.

Mitigating Factors for IIS FTP Service Heap Buffer Overrun Vulnerability - CVE-2010-3972

Mitigation refers to a setting, common configuration, or general best-practice, existing in a default state, that could reduce the severity of exploitation of a vulnerability. The following mitigating factors may be helpful in your situation:

  • FTP Service is not installed by default on Internet Information Services (IIS).
  • FTP Service is not automatically started after installation.
  • No FTP Site is automatically created even when FTP service is installed and started.

Workarounds for IIS FTP Service Heap Buffer Overrun Vulnerability - CVE-2010-3972

Workaround refers to a setting or configuration change that does not correct the underlying vulnerability but would help block known attack vectors before you apply the update. Microsoft has tested the following workarounds and states in the discussion whether a workaround reduces functionality:

  • Stop and disable the FTP Service

    Run the following command from a command prompt as an administrator:

    sc stop ftpsvc
    sc config ftpsvc start= disabled

    Impact of workaround. Clients will not be able to connect to the FTP server and upload or download files using the FTP Service.

    How to undo the workaround.

    Run the following command from a command prompt as an administrator:

    sc config ftpsvc start= auto
    sc start ftpsvc

  • Block FTP inbound traffic at the edge firewall

    Block the following port at the firewall:

    TCP Port 21

    This port is used to initiate a connection with the affected component. Blocking this port at the edge firewall will help protect systems that are behind that firewall from attempts to exploit this vulnerability. Microsoft recommends that you block all unsolicited inbound communication from the Internet to help prevent attacks that may use other ports. For more information about ports, see the TechNet article, TCP and UDP Port Assignments.

    Impact of Workaround. Applications and services may use the affected port. Blocking connectivity to the port may cause various applications or services to not function.

    How to undo the workaround.

    Unblock TCP port 21 at the firewall. For more information about ports, see the TechNet article, TCP and UDP Port Assignments.

Verifying That the Update Has Been Applied

  • Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer

    To verify that a security update has been applied to an affected system, you may be able to use the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) tool. See the section, Detection and Deployment Tools and Guidance, earlier in this bulletin for more information.

  • File Version Verification

    Because there are several editions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your system. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.

    1. Click Start and then enter an update file name in the Start Search box.
    2. When the file appears under Programs, right-click the file name and click Properties.
    3. On the General tab, compare the file size with the file information tables provided in the bulletin KB article.

      Note Depending on the edition of the operating system, or the programs that are installed on your system, some of the files that are listed in the file information table may not be installed.
    4. You can also click the Details tab and compare information, such as file version and date modified, with the file information tables provided in the bulletin KB article.

      Note Attributes other than the file version may change during installation. Comparing other file attributes to the information in the file information table is not a supported method of verifying that the update has been applied. Also, in certain cases, files may be renamed during installation. If the file or version information is not present, use one of the other available methods to verify update installation.
    5. Finally, you can also click the Previous Versions tab and compare file information for the previous version of the file with the file information for the new, or updated, version of the file.
