Microsoft fix 10 year old bug rated Critical by Microsoft... now onto the 15 year old bug


Microsoft's list of updates for its Windows platform, released to the public as part of its regular Patch Tuesday update cycle earlier this week, included a patch for a decade-old flaw known as Jasbug. Described as a 'fundamental design flaw,' the security vulnerability - rated Critical by Microsoft, its highest designation - took Microsoft and discoverer JAS Global Advisors a year to resolve post-discovery. Now, details of another bug in the platform have been released by Breaking Malware - and this one stretches back even further, up to fifteen years... those still on unsupported platforms like Windows XP will not receive the patch.
