Microsoft OS Exploited by Attack Code


Hackers have posted code that could be used to target Microsoft's Windows operating system in a worm attack.

The code, which was published early Thursday on the Milw0rm website, works on the Windows 2000 operating system, according to Oliver Friedrichs, director of emerging technologies with Symantecís Security Response.

It takes advantage of a flaw in the Windows Workstation service, which Windows uses to do things like file-sharing or printing over the network. Microsoft OS Exploited by Attack Code - Security Feed - Blog - CSO Magazine
