VE3OGG writes "According to ComputerWorld a somewhat critical flaw was found in several versions of Microsoft's Windows operating system, including its latest flagship product, Windows Vista.

Supposedly, the flaw would be performed by a regular user who would then execute malicious code that targets the Client/Server Runtime Server Subsystem — a subsystem reponsible for launching and terminating applications. This exploit could then potentially allow the regular user to gain administrator priviledges."
