Oh, the irony...

Microsoft has owned up to a flaw in its debugging software which could give a malicious hacker complete control of a computer. The problem, rated as critical by Microsoft, occurs because of the capability of the debugging software to connect to any running program and take control of it. Microsoft has discovered a vulnerability in the debugging program itself which could allow a hacker to take advantage of this feature. A fix for the flaw is available at: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS02-024.asp
