    "Microsoft released fixes on Tuesday for two sets of flaws in its Windows
    operating system and another two vulnerabilities in the software giant's
    Exchange mail server, security issues which could allow a worm to propagate
    between vulnerable systems, security experts warned.

    A critically-ranked patch addresses two flaws in Windows that affect the
    Macromedia Flash player from Adobe, a plugin that ships with Microsoft's
    Internet Explorer 6 browser, and could allow remote code execution, the
    software giant said in its bulletin. The other patch, which is rated
    moderate for severity, fixes two flaws in the Microsoft Distributed
    Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) that could be used to cause a
    denial-of-service, the software giant stated."
