Preuzeto sa TechTV stranice:

If you use Windows XP on the Internet, you are at serious risk. Microsoft's "most reliable, secure, and dependable operating system" has holes big enough to drive a 2-ton compiler through them.

The Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) service on Windows XP has two gaping security holes. The first involves a buffer overrun, a common source for Windows bugs. It turns out that by sending a certain type of NOTIFY directive, a hacker can take control of the UPnP service, and through that take control of the entire computer.

In the second security hole, hackers can launch denial-of-service attacks by exploiting UPnP's ability to store device information on a third-party server. In these types of attacks, the co-opted machine floods a second system with service requests, overwhelming that system's ability to respond to any other requests, and essentially removing it from service.

The holes were originally discovered by eEye Digital Security, the company that worked with Microsoft to develop a solution before going public with its findings.

Both problems are severe enough for Microsoft to release a critical service warning for Windows XP users. Windows 98, 98SE, and Me users who have installed the Internet Connection Sharing service are also at risk.

Anyone running these operating systems should download the patch available on the Microsoft website.
