MS03-039 Exploit How-To Released!!

September 14, 2003


Ok guys.. I just received this email on the NTSysAdmin mailing list:

The PSS Security team is issuing this alert to advise customers that on Saturday 9/13/03 a research company called XXXXXX published a paper providing guidance on how to exploit the vulnerabilities patched by Microsoft Security Bulletin MS03-039. To date we've had no reports of actual exploit code being publicly available or being used actively in a worm or virus

The paper makes it very simple to your 11 year old neighbor to write a worm with this exploit.

Patch your systems!! Mine are all patched (as of today) so get busy.

Find out more about the PSS Security Team.
