+ - Vista Client Server Vulnerability Uncovered

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."

Getting the job done is no excuse for not following the rules. Corollary: Following the rules will not get the job done.

Working...
