Still More Microsoft Security Holes

| News

Still more security holes have been found in Microsoft products, the latest two center on Micrsoftis SQL server. As CNN reports it, the first one leads to the now familiar buffer overflow problem which, in turn, allows hackers access to the server. The second hole can cause iDenial of Servicei attack. From CNN:

The security problems affect SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 7.0 and are related to the way these two versions of the product create and display text messages after a query is submitted, the company said in a security bulletin. Microsoft labeled the risk from the first flaw as "moderate" and from the second flaw as "low."

There are patches available for both holes from Microsoft.
