    I think it was incredible stupid of Microsoft to make a statement on security and there focus on it. It is a well known fact that once you claim to be secure you get hacked.
    On the bright side, only good can come out of this. Microsoft might even shape up, or add a couple of liunes to the constitution, whichever costs less.

    I remember seeing something about this a couple days ago. I guess the machine was a "chat" machine used for tech support. It was not located in america if I remember correctly.

    Anyway, it still sucks for microsoft. Remember Oracle saying 9i couldn't be hacked

    Whenever Ms is tries to cough up its security measures,they are actualy creating more bugs.
    Thats what the trend seems to be.

    Yeah, this happened two to three days ago, but it seems that MS can't even patch any security holes in their software as of late either. As of late? I mean...as always.

    MS blows it again - Patch issued last week for Windows ME causes lock ups and erratic behavior
    MS takes ME fix for DDoS in Plug and Play component offline
    03-29-2002 10:42:42 AM CST - from the MS ' whoops we botched it again ' department





    "Microsoft has issued a warning that the patch it issued last week to fix a denial-of-service vulnerability in the Universal Plug and Play component in Windows ME contained a regression error that causes affected machines to become erratic and hangs some applications. The good news is that similar patches for Windows 98 and XP are unaffected.

    Microsoft has removed the Windows ME patch from its Web site and is working on an updated patch. This is the second time in less than three weeks that Microsoft has had to retract a patch because of a regression error. In late October the company had a similar problem with a patch to repair a vulnerability in the terminal services component of Windows 2000. Instead of fixing the flaw, the patch prevented the service from working at all."

    And that's the up to the minute news from snp.com
