General Information

Executive Summary

This security update resolves one publicly disclosed vulnerability in 
Microsoft Service Bus for Windows Server. The vulnerability could allow denial
of service if a remote authenticated attacker creates and runs a program that

shipped with any Microsoft operating system. For an affected system to be 
vulnerable Microsoft Service Bus must first be downloaded, installed, and 
configured, and then its configuration details (farm certificate) shared with
other users.

This security update is rated Moderate for Microsoft Service Bus 1.1 when 
installed on affected editions of Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012,
and Windows Server 2012 R2.
