Microsoft Windows 2000 Security Flaw Worse Than First Thought is a story on the report that a recently discovered Win2K vulnerability is worse than originally thought, saying "It's important that businesses apply a new patch to all Windows 2000 systems, advisories state -- not just those running Microsoft's IIS Web server software." They quote the advisory as saying: "We expect that a worm attack similar to Nimda will eventually be created using this vulnerability as a primary mechanism. Such a broad 'zero day' attack could be orchestrated as soon as 7-10 days, and is likely in the next month." Vulnerable systems are those "running Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Server, or Professional with either Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3 installed." The patch to address this and its related information can be found here. Thanks Darkhorse.
