    ASN.1 ... that sounds familiar. Is it something to do with SNMP?

    This one could be huge. MS03-007 has the potential to be bigger than any previous MS vulnerability - IF it gets exploited.

    Also, expect a revision to the MS04-004 IE patch later this week or next. Not sure if there will be new version or just an additional patch but we've had word from MS that there are problems with it.

    Gads! This one was on the news last night.

    Sometimes I just want to cut the cables. For now, I'm just glad I still haven't stepped up to XP [​IMG]

    It also affects NT 4, 2000, and 2003.
