Hackers Keep On At Windows

Security experts are warning that hackers continue to develop software known as "exploits" that will be used to attack vulnerable Windows systems. An exploit is one of the first steps toward the development of a worm, experts say. Microsoft disclosed three vulnerabilities that affect Windows NT 4.0, 2000, XP, and Server 2003 on Sept. 10. The vulnerabilities are very similar to those announced in July, which led to the Blaster worm outbreak in August that infected more than 500,000 systems.
