Patch for Outloook Security Hole
Posted on: 07/21/2000 06:13 PM

This hole is so big, you'll need to strap Microsoft's 2x4 of a patch on your ass so you don't fall in. Seriously, it's a bad one.

Here's what they have to say:

Microsoft has released an upgrade workaround for the "Malformed E-mail Header" vulnerability in Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express. The vulnerability is caused by an unchecked buffer that can allow a malicious user to create a buffer overrun which can either allow a computer to fail, or worse, can allow the sender to take any action on the machine that the user can
The most important part is the "take any action" part.

Get the patch here.
