Increase Of Attacks On Windows

by Lee

A news has been released that there have been more attacks reported just after the news break out about the animated cursor flaw in Windows operating systems.

“Overnight we did see the attacks change from limited and targeted attacks to slightly more, but do still categorize it as a limited attack,” said Mark Miller who is the director of Microsoft’s response group.

The zero-day attack is targeted on users who are using Microsoft’s latest operating system, Vista.

People at McAfee saw a post on a Chinese forum that hackers were planning on exploiting the flaw last Wednesday.

The attacks are limited to Internet Explorer versions 6 and 7 according to Miller.
