Exploits in the wild for Microsoft’s August patches

Slashdot post: Exploits Circulating for Latest Windows Holes. 1sockchuck writes “Exploits are already circulating for at least two (and possibly four) of the Windows security holes addressed in Microsoft’s updates on Tuesday. Several working exploits have been released for a new vulnerability in Windows Plug and Play technology, which could be used to spread a worm targeting Windows 2000 machines, according to eEye security, which has released a free scanner to help network admins identify vulnerable computers.”

Keep patching! If you were quick on the draw initially, you might have run into trouble as some of the patch files were corrupted, but Microsoft fixed that problem.
