Windows 2000 SNMP Unchecked Buffer Vulnerability Patch

This update resolves the 'Unchecked Buffer in SNMP Service Could Enable Arbitrary Code to be Run' security vulnerability in Windows 2000, and is discussed in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS02-006. This patch prevents a malicious user from running code of their choice or launching a Denial of Service (DoS) attack on your computer. The vulnerability exists because a component of the SNMP agent service that interprets incoming commands contains an unchecked buffer. By sending a specially malformed request, it is possible to carry out a buffer overrun attack against an affected system.
