US Homeland Security Urges Windows Users to Install Patch

Share

In the wake of today’s dramatic security developments you may have missed the fact that the US Department of Homeland Security issued a rare alert yesterday, urging Windows PC users into download and install a Microsoft Critical Fix as soon as possible. The MS06-040 patch fixes a security hole that can allow hackers to take complete control of a PC. It’s a similar threat to the MSBlast worm that was doing the rounds three years ago. It exploits a loophole in Windows Remote Procedure Call networking support facility and it affects all versions of Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 2003 SP1.
