Dateline CeBIT, Hannover Germany

According to eEye a recent Microsoft vulnerability exists in Windows NT4. Yet the patch is only available to customers who have purchased an extended support contract.

This is another example of the responsibility Microsoft has for keeping the entire Internet healthy and how Microsoft is not owning up to that responsibility. According to Netcraft hundreds of thousands of web servers are vulnerable to the inevitable worm that will target this vulnerability.

Microsoft, heal thy customers!
