Big security problem hits Windows, Internet Explorer
Exploits of our time
Just in case you don't know, Internet Explorer and Windows need frequent patching, a software term for kind of fixing things, an awful lot. Secunia said that there is a highly critical problem with IE and Windows, due to a boundary error which can be exploited by others. It warns that the hole affects Windows 95, 98, ME and NT 4.0, as well as 2000 and Windows XP. This is a serious problem and Secunia reckons one way round it is to disable Client for Microsoft Networks for NICs. This is a bit of a problem if you're trying to share files.
