The specific flaw exists within the handling of file uploads. The issue lies in the failure to sanitize the path of files uploaded, allowing for them to be placed within directories accessible through the service. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code as SYSTEM.

Given the nature of the vulnerability, the only salient mitigation strategy is to restrict interaction with the service to trusted machines. Only the clients and servers that have a legitimate procedural relationship with the service should be permitted to communicate with it. This could be accomplished in a number of ways, most notably with firewall rules/whitelisting. These features are available in the native Windows Firewall, as described in http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc725770%28WS.10%29.aspx and numerous other Microsoft Knowledge Base articles.
