Hi everyone, when I heard about the new Windows 2003 server and its so called powerful functionality, I was really interested in going for it. Then I came across an article that made me change my decision. The article is as follows -

Microsoft announced three new security breaches in its latest server software - Microsoft Windows Advanced Server 2003. This included one critical flaw that allows hackers to run any unauthorised code on the victims PC. This flaw, known as a buffer overrun vulnerability allow an attacker to run their own executable code.

Another flaw located in the HTML converter in windows can be used by hackers to spread the code either by e-mail or by creating a special web-page that triggers the code when a user visits it.

The most important thing to be noted here is that the flaw is present in all the windows operating system versions right from windows 98,98 SE, Me, NT 4.0, 2000, XP and now the Advanced Server 2003.

The question still lingers among the users of windows - When is Microsoft really going to get serious about its software that is error free and free from major security flaws like the one mentioned above???

Microsoft Windows Server 2003 users are requested to download the security patch available on the Microsoft website.

This is probably the reason why everyone is switching to Open Source.

Hail Linus Torvalds and his Open Source - Linux!!!.
