U.S. Department of Homeland Security warning on latest Microsoft patch August 10, 2006Posted by rjdohnert in Uncategorized.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) warned Wednesday that a recently patched Microsoft Corp. Windows vulnerability could put the nation’s critical infrastructure at risk. Hackers have already exploited a Windows Server service, one of the 12 vulnerabilities patched just recently
The patch, described in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS06-040, relates to Windows Server services. It was one of 12 updates issued Tuesday, by the software giant, but security experts are particularly concerned with the bug because hackers have already exploited the vulnerability. The vulnerability is described on Microsoft’s Web site.
My Thoughts; Do as the government says. PATCH! PATCH! PATCH !!
