Researchers claim to have found a critical vulnerability in Windows that
jeopardises all Windows operating systems from 2000 onwards.
Server software firm 2X Software says it has found a simple software
vulnerability that could be used in denial of service attacks against the last
decade's worth of Windows operating systems.
“This is a major problem with potentially tens of millions of devices at risk.
Such a vulnerability leaves users open to Denial of Service attacks which can be
devastating – imagine your company servers and PCs being restarted remotely
every few minutes,” said Paul Gafa, chief technology officer of 2X Software.
