Rule:  WEB-FRONTPAGE fp30reg.dll
       WEB-FRONTPAGE rad overflow
Sid:  1248
Summary:  fp30reg.dll is a component that is installed during a custom
installation of Microsoft Visual Studio RAD.   
Impact:  The fp30reg.dll component could possibly allow an attacker to
run code of choice against the target web server.  The code could
possibly run in the context of the system account. 
Detailed Information:  The Microsoft Visual Studio Remote Application
Deployment Subcomponent can be selected during the installation of Front
Page Server Extensions.  Microsoft previously released a patch to
correct this issue, however the patch has been pulled until further
Attack Scenarios:  A proof of concept script has been posted by the
NSFOCUS security team.  The script is available at the security focus
reference below.
Ease of Attack:  This component is not installed during a default
installation of Microsoft Internet Information Services.  It is also not
part of the default installation of Front Page Server Extensions or
Microsoft Visual Studio RAD.  In the event that this component was
selected during the installation of a production web server, this would
be an easy exploit.  
False Positives:  N/A
False Negatives:  N/A
Corrective Action:  Microsoft will make a fix available for this in
Windows 2000 service pack 3.  Removal of the offending component
fp30reg.dll is required in order to eliminate this vulnerability
