Microsoft Hunts Down Zero-Day Bug
Microsoft security gurus are hunting
down and trying to kill
off a bug in Windows XP, Vista and Server 2003 that
lets already-authenticated users gain more privileges.
While this bug mainly supports inside hacking jobs, smart social engineers
could also gain a foothold (like your password) and then wreak havoc. As for
the insiders, the mostly likely attackers are admins who script and programmers
who host their code on your machines.
