Microsoft today urged all Windows customers to immediately install critical updates to counter exploit codes made available on the internet.
In a statement, Microsoft said it had been made aware of an exploit code -- available on the internet -- which seeks to exploit vulnerabilities.
“Microsoft considers these reports credible and serious and continues to urge all customers to immediately install MS04-011 as well as the other critical updates provided last week,” the software vendor stated.
“This exploit code targets server platforms that are running Internet Information Services to serve websites with Secure Socket Layer authentication enabled. The exploit code attempts to exploit the PCT/SSL vulnerability addressed by bulletin MS04-011. Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0 are primarily at risk.”
