Flaws Found In Windows

Microsoft has informed customers of new security vulnerabilities in several applications and versions of its Windows operating system. The most serious affects most Microsoft operating systems from Windows 98 to Windows Server 2003. The vulnerability could let an attacker craft a specially formed MIDI (audio) file that could cause unpatched versions of Microsoft's DirectX graphics and audio technology to experience a buffer overflow and possibly even hijack a user's system through malicious E-mails and Web pages. Other flaws can let hijackers escalate system-access privileges in certain circumstances.
