“Super Exploits” to Target New Windows Holes?.
Mary Jo Foley reports about vulnerability rumors:
Rumors are swirling about possible “super exploits” that could target several of the Windows vulnerabilities unveiled by Microsoft last week. The Internet Storm Center at The SANS Institute have issued a warning.
The four patches were included in Microsoft's monthly scheduled release of patches for security problems and addressed a large number of “critical” and “important” vulnerabilities. Experts, including the ISC, recommend that users patch quickly.
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THE PATCHES PROVIDED BY MICROSOFT IN ITS APRIL SECURITY RELEASE BE APPLIED TO SYSTEMS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. It is our belief that the likelihood of a worm being released SOON that exploits one of the vulnerabilities addressed by these patches is VERY HIGH.
