Code Exec Bugs Hit Windows

:1pissed: :1pissed: :1pissed:

Officials at security software vendor eEye say two high-level vulnerabilities are targeting numerous versions of Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003 operating systems. But Microsoft isn't saying much more.

Details of the two vulnerabilities, which were first reported on March 16 and March 29, respectively, will remain sketchy until the company releases patches for them.

Maiffret, eEye co-founder and chief hacking officer, said the vulnerabilities allow crackers (define) to insert a remote code execution script into the system, giving them complete control over the computer. He added that attack vectors can come from Internet Explorer, Outlook or even chat programs like MSN Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger.

After the install of Firefox, all your old settings, bookmarks and passwords along with history are imported.

Once firefox kick in, if you want the icon "my favourites" to be placed on the toolbar, you must right click the toolbar and pick the "favourites" icon and place it on the toolbar.

And the most beautiful thing that FIREFOX is FREE! There is no ads, no spyware/adware. Just a secure and fast browser. Unlike Internet Explorer, Firefox is developing by a foundation, Mozilla;
