A flaw has been found in Windows Vista that could allow rootkits to be hidden or denial-of-service attacks to be executed on computers using the operating system.

The vulnerability was found by Thomas Unterleitner of Austrian security company Phion and was announced Friday. Unterleitner told ZDNet UK on Friday that Phion told Microsoft about the flaw in October but that he understood a fix would only be issued in the next Vista service pack.

According to Unterleitner's disclosure of the flaw, the issue lies in the network input/output subsystem of Vista. Certain requests sent to the iphlpapi.dll API can cause a buffer overflow that corrupts the Vista kernel memory, resulting in a blue-screen-of-death crash.

"This buffer overflow could (also) be exploited to inject code, hence compromising client security," Unterleitner said.

Another reason to despise Shistain...

Incorrect question to be asking; the correct should be are they capable of leaning?

Id hazard a guess, from looking at Vienna, the answer would be a resounding no!!

XP is fine, once SP3 is on it. Almost at the same level as 2000. But Vista... well yeah, they're still workin that one out.

William has left the building now, so they are having to unravel the code behind it, reverse engineering to resolve the faults if ya like!

You allow Windows to run updates. Shit man, you are brave. XP SP2 comes to mind hahaha!

An 6 months out of date Windows is the most stable version you can get haha!
