    Microsoft today issued a critical recommendation
    regarding Windows, Windows XP, or ME machines that share internet
    connections with Windows 98/98SE clients.
    This is in relation to a unchecked buffer in Universal Plug & Play.

    Microsoft thanks eEye Digital Security (http://www.eeye.com) for reporting this issue to us and working with us to protect customers.

But I can advice everybody to read the full article at eEye since it contains some information not provided by microsoft. You can find the article here.
