    The U.S. government has issued a stern warning that computer hackers may be preparing to launch a sweeping attack that could potentially compromise millions of computers running Microsoft Corp.'s popular Windows operating systems.

    "This is a very serious issue," said Chris Wysopal, director of research and development at AtStake Inc., an Internet security company in Cambridge, Mass. He estimates about 90 per cent of the world's computers could be affected.
