Hackers Pass Out New Software For Attacks

Robert E. Harvey, M.D. writes "Security researchers on Tuesday detected hackers distributing software to break into computers using flaws announced last week in some versions of Microsoft Corp.'s Windows operating system.

The threat from this new vulnerability - which already has drawn stern warnings from the Homeland Security Department - is remarkably similar to one that allowed the Blaster virus to infect hundreds of thousands of computers last month."
