Computerworld: The deal on the Windows DNS bug

Posted by Bharat Suneja at 4:47 PM
The still unpatched Windows DNS Server bug has been the topic of many a security discussions during the past few days. If you're running your DNS on a Windows Server (using DNS Server service), this affects you. Computerworld's Gregg Keizer has a nice write-up about this issue that I just stumbled upon, thanks to Sunbelt Software's WServer News newsletter.

According to Computerworld, there are at least 5 exploits in proof-of-concept form floating out there. Chris Budd from the Microsoft Security Response Center says Microsoft has "teams around the world working twenty-four hours a day". An update/hotfix is expected around May 8th, in time for next month's Patch Tuesday.
