New Vista Exploit On The Way

ZDNet has just released information on a possible new attack vector for Microsoft Windows Vista.

[It] provides a clear roadmap for hackers to plant malware or open backdoors on Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and 2 as well as Windows 2008 SP1 server

This puts Microsoft in a bind, since its scheduled “patch Tuesday” isn’t for another two weeks. Do they issue a special patch?

In the meantime Microsoft has released a workaround. Or, to do it yourself you can follow the directions in the workaround section found here.

Vista users take heed.
