Microsoft Windows contains a flaw that may allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service. The issue is due to the Distributed Transaction Controller (MSDTC) not properly handling crafted Transaction Internet Protocol (TIP) message traffic that repeatedly connects after an error occurs. This may cause the service to hang and require a restart by the administrator.
