Windows critical vulnerability

Filed under: Security — Tags: , , , , , — zundel @ am

Highly critical zero day vulnerability in Windows discovered

Just when I had begun to think that Windows 7 didn’t suck.
My mistake in thinking gets corrected.
They still can’t write secure and reliable software.

If you value your time and security, stop using Microsoft software.

We thought the days of the Blue Screen of Death had passed. Hah.
Could we have a new and improved Windows that at least changes the color?

The bug is in Windows, not Safari.
It will crash the system.
And could allow serious security breaches.

Most of the internet runs on Linux.
The majority of business servers run Linux.
The computer in front of you can run Linux. Mine does.
Fast, secure, and easy to use.

Try these:
Kubuntu (lovely, capable, and easy desktop)
Debian (rock solid server and a nice desktop)
openSuSE (stable & up-to-date)

  1. Microsoft confirms Windows vulnerability

    Although the vulnerability lies not in the browser but in this Windows component, the relevant function is frequently called by browsers.

    Security firm Secunia rated the vulnerability as “highly critical”, since it could lead to the injection and execution of malicious code.

    There have been cases in the past where Microsoft stated that a vulnerability could not be used to inject malicious code – and then had to retract its statement and provide a patch once an exploit had been published. The only certainty at the moment is that both black hats and white hats are currently working on developing a compatible exploit.
