Date Initially Reported: April 23, 2015

We are aware of the security advisory published by Microsoft regarding a vulnerability in Windows that could allow remote code execution if an attacker sends a specially crafted HTTP request to an affected Windows system. This vulnerability could allow an attacker to gain control over exploited systems and expose sensitive data that resides on the server or workstation.

Based on the analysis of our internet-facing infrastructure worldwide, ADP’s Global Security Organization has identified that a very small portion of our servers could potentially be affected. Remediation efforts are well-underway and we are performing specific monitoring until remediation is complete.

It is important to note that the vast majority of ADP’s global applications and services provided to our clients are unaffected by this issue.

We have seen no evidence of attempts to exploit this issue on affected ADP assets. For more information on this issue please visit Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-034.
