Exploit already out for new Win2K Bug

An exploit was released Wednesday for the most dangerous of the 14 vulnerabilities that Microsoft unveiled a day earlier. The exploit is against the MSDTC vulnerability within Windows, which was patched Tuesday by Microsoft and outlined in its MS05-051 security bulletin.

Because the MSDTC component -- which coordinates any sort of transaction on multiple servers -- is enabled by default and remotely exploitable on Windows 2000 systems, experts fear that the bug will result in a repeat of the Zotob attacks of August. Most security analysts named the flaw as the most dangerous of Tuesday's bunch. Exploit already out for new Win2K Bug - Security - www.itnews.com.au
