  • New Emergency Patch for Windows!!

    Hi all,

    I just got warned about a new critical flaw for which Microsoft has released an emergency patch. It could result in a remote code execution in Windows machines that haven't got any firewalls in place and worst of all it doesn't require any user authentication to execute (Except in Vista and Server2008 when a user authentication is required).
    The patch has been made available to WSUS and The Security Bulletin describing this vulnerability is called MS08-067 and you can read more about it in the link below, including download details for the ones that haven't got WSUS or any other Patch management systems in place.

      Thanks for suggestion mate,

      I am already signed up to that, but the reason I flagged this one up Is because the vulnerability affects a wide range of products the ease of system compromise since it doesn't require any user authentication at all.

      Good link for the ones that need to sign up for notifications though.
