Working exploits for [URL=http://www.techspot.com/vb/search.php?s=&action=showresults&searchid=125612&sortby=lastpost&sortorder=ascending]recent security vulnerabilities[/URL] in Microsoft Windows has been publicly released.

Several sites, including but not limited to [URL=http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?date=2004-04-15]Internet Storm Center[/URL] and [URL=http://news.netcraft.com/archives/2004/04/19/exploit_targets_windows_ssl_vulnerability.html]Netcraft[/URL] are reporting that working code for the very recent vulnerabilities in Windows has already been released.

It is expected that viruses will be released within a matter of days that exploit these vulnerabilities, partly because of the facts that working viruses of old vulnerabilities are already out in the wild and modifying them to work with these new vulnerabilities will be easy.
