An important security warning not from Microsoft (via Computerworld):
“MAY 13, 2004 (TECHWORLD.COM) – Almost the entire range of Symantec Corp. security software, from Norton Internet Security through to the Symantec Firewall, requires urgent updates, the company has warned, after four critical vulnerabilities were found by security company eEye Digital Security Inc.
One of the holes remains open even with all ports filtered and intrusion rules set thanks to a separate design flaw, eEye has warned. This makes it an almost certain target for worm writers, one of which — if history is any indication — may be put out on the Internet within 24 hours. ”
If you haven’t already installed the Windows patch released on Tuesday, you might as well take care of both patches in one sitting.
Doesn’t it seem like we do a lot of patching these days?
