There is a remote code execution vulnerability in Internet Information Services

attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability to take complete 
control of the affected system. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by 
sending specially crafted URL requests to a Web page hosted by Internet 
Information Services.


Workaround Details:

1. Use URLScan 2.5 
   The installation of URLScan helps protect the affected system from attempts 
   to exploit this vulnerability.

   - Install URLScan, using the default URLScan.ini settings.
   - Restart the IISAdmin and WWW Publishing services for the changes to take 
      effect.

2. To help protect from network-based attempts to exploit this vulnerability, 
   block access to port 80 (TCP) using:
   
   - Windows Firewall.

3. Uninstall IIS on systems that do not require it.
