Hackers Attacking New Microsoft Zero Day Bug

A zero day vulnerability in several of Microsoft's server products could enable a hacker to divert the Web traffic of not just a single user but of a company's entire roster of employees, the company warned this week.

Microsoft released an advisory late Thursday warning users that it is investigating a "limited" number of attacks that are exploiting a vulnerability in the Domain Name System (DNS) Server Service. The bug could affect servers running Microsoft Windows 2000 Server Service Pack 4, Windows Server 2003 SP 1, and Windows Server 2003 SP 2.

The advisory states that Windows Vista, along with Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional SP 4 and Windows XP SP 2, do not contain the flawed code, and so they are not affected. Hackers Attacking New Microsoft Zero-Day Bug -- Server Security -- InformationWeek
