Important Windows Updates Coming

Saturday, 2007-May-05 at 20:04

There are several patches, including some rated "critical" coming on Tuesday.  Be sure to get your patches pretty quickly on that day.

Yahoo! News reports that there are many more attacks using e-mailed file attachments.  Another attack imitates "Windows Activation  to steal credit card information.

“File format vulnerabilities weren’t being researched by hackers several years ago, but people figured out that this was an easy way to create new attacks that might so they’ve been using fuzzing technologies to find holes,” [ISS spokesperson Holly] Stewart said. “We’re also seeing the malware writers come up with a large number of variants on their attacks very quickly, sometimes at a rate of one new attack per hour.”

The overall message is clear: one must remain vigilant, using caution to avoid placing one’s computer and data into the control of malevolent parties.
