Late last week, Microsoft put out an out-of-cycle
that fixes Remote Procedure Call (RPC) problems in some older software
including Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003 and XP (XP may be old, but it clearly
ain't going anywhere soon).
Hackers can exploit these RPC holes to run code remotely and, unfortunately,
is the perfect platform for a worm. It just might be time to fire up Shavlik,
WSUS or your patch system of choice.
