    FIX: Cursor Type and Column Updatability May Change with Some Sort Orders (Q310572)

    A cursor declared as DYNAMIC is actually open as KEYSET/OPTIMISTIC.

    An ODBC application may receive the following error message when SQL Server updates a result set:

    ...runtime error 40038, can't assign value to non-updatable field
    A call to the SQLColAttribute SQL_DESC_UPDATABLE property made on the column present in the ORDER BY clause returns SQL_ATTR_READWRITE_UNKNOWN (#define SQL_ATTR_READWRITE_UNKNOWN 2). Any subsequent update attempt on the result set column returns the error message mentioned earlier.


    FIX: SQL Server Text Formatting Functions Contain Unchecked Buffers (Q304851)

    SQL Server 7.0 provides a number of functions that enable database queries to generate text messages. In some cases, the functions create a text message and store it in a variable; in others, the functions directly display the message. A vulnerability has been discovered with these functions.

    Use of an invalid format type character may allow SQL Server to overwrite an internal buffer that may overwrite an address in the SQL Server process space with arbitrary data. If SQL Server overwrites an address in the SQL Server process space with arbitrary data, SQL Server may potentially allow you to execute arbitrary code within SQL Server or the SQL Server process may abnormally terminate.


    This last one is an update from a previous bullitin, on Dec20
