The RPC DCOM interface in Windows 2000 SP3 and SP4 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash), and local attackers to
use the DoS to hijack the epmapper pipe to gain privileges, via
certain messages to the __RemoteGetClassObject interface that cause a
NULL pointer to be passed to the PerformScmStage function.
