    Exclamation Do you use NT/Win2k? Vulnerability

    From ExtremeTech.com

    A serious hole in Windows NT and Windows 2000 allows any user (even "guest") to gain complete control of the machine. This bug -- called a "privilege escalation" vulnerability -- is particularly worrisome, because it does more than open the system to attacks from its own users. It also amplifies the dangers associated with other security holes that Microsoft has dismissed as not being serious. Why?

    no system is secure not even linux or win 2000. a nice example for you:
    just type in http://www.google.com instead of
    "cracking win 2000 login password" "recover win 2000 login password"
    and here we go ...
