This update resolves the "Invalid URL" security vulnerability in Internet Information Server (IIS). If an invalid URL is sent to a server with this vulnerability, it could, under certain conditions, cause the server to access invalid memory and cause IIS to fail. Download now to prevent a malicious user from disabling requests for Web pages, File Transfer Protocol services, and other services provided by IIS.

This vulnerability does not provide the opportunity to compromise any data on the server or to usurp any administrative privileges on the server. In addition, an affected computer can be put back into useful service by restarting the IIS service.

For more information about these vulnerabilities, please read Microsoft Security Bulletin MS00-063.
