More Serious Holes

It's not been Microsoft's week. First they had the catastrophic remote exploit via the PnP engine in Windows 2000. Lots of very foolish high profile media companies appear to have been infected, even though a patch was available, and all the experts did issue warnings that it could get nasty.

Just as the dust starts to settle, another gaping hole has been found, this time in Internet Explorer. Again it's a remote exploit so the user doesn't have to do anything to get infected.

All software has bugs - sometime serious - but Microsoft does seem to have more than their fair share...
