More exploits for Windows posted

More exploits for Windows were posted on the web on Wednesday and Thursday. One could allow a remote attacker to gain complete control over a vulnerable computer, taking advantage of a flaw in the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator. Another exploits a flaw in the way Windows handles certain graphics files, which could cause a vulnerable system to crash.

David Marcus, security research and communications manager at McAfee, said: "It is reasonable to assume as we have seen so much proof-of-concept code distributed for these vulnerabilities that we will eventually see some class of attack."
