Microsoft Windows Server operating systems are being attacked by attackers according to a recent news. These attackers are targeting a flaw which is located in the DNS service feature of the operating systems.
It affects versions Windows 2000 Server SP4 and Windows Server 2003 with either SP1 or SP2. Port 53 is not affected as well as other Windows operating systems such as 2000 and XP.
Two universities have been attacked from a source with an I.P. address of 188.8.131.52.
Microsoft has not yet made an announcement on when they will release a patch for this problem. One of the workaround instructions that they have released is to disable remote access of DNS by using remote procedure call.
