,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft Corp. today said it will update the antipiracy software in Windows
| XP Professional to make nagging more prominent for those running bogus copies

| notification of an impending update to the tool.
Windows 2000 faces security melt down
,----[ Quote ]
| Despite the fact that the operating system is as old as Spinola, and
| that Microsoft refused to service them any more, there is still a
| large number of Windows 2000 machines out there.
| According to News.com, a "critical" Windows 2000 exploit has been
| released on the Internet designed to kick the crutch of the ageing
| operating system.
| The exploit takes advantage of a security hole in a file system and
| print request application "Workstation Service". The flaw can be
| exploited remotely without any user interaction.
| Microsoft has released a patch for the operating system using
| security bulletin MS06-070. This is despite saying that it had
| given up on Windows 2000 and would not make any more security
| ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^
| fixes for it.
