Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
The Windows NAT Driver (aka winnat) service in Microsoft Windows Server 2012 does not properly validate memory addresses during the processing of ICMP packets, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system hang) via crafted packets, aka "Windows NAT Denial of Service Vulnerability."
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
