Mass hack targets critical Windows flaw
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 6/23/2005 11:41:00 AM.

A recent surge in port 445 scanning activity could herald impending hack attacks, and industry experts have warned firms to take "immediate steps" to ensure that the affected Windows ports are secure.

Gartner pointed to recent reports that security vulnerability sensors have noted an increase in activity on TCP port 445, which is associated with Microsoft's Windows Server Message Block (SMB) protocol.

"This port could be used to exploit the Microsoft Incoming SMB Packet Validation Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability (MS05-027), a critical flaw for which Microsoft released a patch on 14 June, "

... warned John Pescatore, vice president and research fellow at Gartner Research.
