Windows Flaw Poses Threat

A new Windows vulnerability disclosed last week poses great risks for unpatched systems, research firm Gartner says. "This smells like Blaster all over again," says John Pescatore, a research director at Gartner. The firm also questioned Microsoft's commitment to rid its Windows operating system of security holes that make threatening Internet worms possible. The ASN.1 vulnerability exists in Windows 2003 Server as well as the older Windows NT and 2000.
