MS13-018: Hard to let go

MS13-018 addresses a potential denial-of-service condition in the Windows TCP/IP stack. This vulnerability could be leveraged by an attacker in certain circumstances to exhaust a server’s non paged pool, preventing it from making new TCP connections. The vulnerability is as follows: A Windows victim machine has a TCP/IP connection in an ESTABLISHED state to a remote attacker machine, and the Windows victim machine (not the attacker machine) sends a FIN packet to the remote attacker machine to initiate the connection teardown sequence, as outlined in RFC 793.
