Security flaw hits Windows, Mac, Linux

ZDNet UK reports on "a flaw in communications software that could allow attackers to take over computers running Windows, Unix-based operating systems, and Mac OS X, as well as Kerberos authentication systems.

The problem is widespread because it affects some implementations of XDR (external data representation) libraries, used by many applications as a way of sending data from one system process to another, regardless of the system's architecture."
