    Microsoft Patch Useless

    The new patch issued by Microsoft on October 4th did NOT fix the XML vulnerability correctly.

    Microsoft has not replied or issued a new patch yet.

    You mean I have to switch off my computer, go to the bar, and stay"Drunk on Duvel" for a whole week?

    Joking apart, thanks for the "heads up"...when people load these things they assume that they work

    Thanks again

    no **** ? damn.. thanks for the heads up MindwarperX

    edit: I tried your proof of concept Mindwarper.. it didn't work for me. and I don't have that multimedia box checked.. perhaps it's because I never updated my media player.never use the damn thing anyway. I'm running wmp version

    and my concern for this patch isn't so much for the media player.. it's for the Qhosts trojan.. if it fixes that.. I'm happy for the time being.

    edit 2: oh.. just now read the secuirtyfocus link.. it did state wmp version 9

    I cant believe that, i`ve learnt to expect various new exploits every week on windows but i thought at least they issue the patches for them. Turns out they don`t even do that!
