[Vulnerability Type]
Remote + Layer 2

[Security Issue]
The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the SMBv3
protocol handles these specially crafted requests.

A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that the Microsoft
Server Message Block 3.1.1 (SMBv3) protocol handles certain requests.
An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the
ability to execute code on the target server or client.
To exploit the vulnerability against a server, an unauthenticated attacker
could send a specially crafted packet to a targeted SMBv3 server.
To exploit the vulnerability against a client, an unauthenticated attacker
would need to configure a malicious SMBv3 server and convince a user to
connect to it.
