    Worm hole found in Windows 2000

    The vulnerability in Microsoft's operating system could enable remote intruders to enter a PC via its Internet Protocol address, Marc Maiffret, chief hacking officer at eEye Digital Security, said on Wednesday.

    What may be particularly problematic with this unpatched security hole is that a work-around is unlikely, he said.
