The Bug Report

SAN MATEO (03/27/2000) - Microsoft Corp.: To tighten up security on Windows NT 4.0, Microsoft has issued a utility that will increase security on three different Registry values. If these Registry entries are left at their default values, someone may be able to surreptitiously gain additional privileges on a computer that they can log on to. To get the patch for Intel computers, go to www.microsoft.com/downloads/release.asp?ReleaseID=19172. For Alpha computers, go to www.microsoft.com/downloads/release.asp?ReleaseID=19173. If you are running Windows 2000, don't go anywhere -- you are not affected.
