    Microsoft Corp acknowledged a critical vulnerability this week in
    nearly all versions of its flagship Windows operating system software

    ...

    "This is one of the worst Windows vulnerabilities ever," said Marc
    Maiffret, an executive at eEye Digital Security Inc. of Aliso Viejo,
    California, whose researchers discovered similarly dangerous flaws in
    at least three earlier versions of Windows.

    ...

    But four Polish researchers, known as the "Last Stage of Delirium
    Research Group," said they discovered how to bypass the additional
    protections Microsoft added, just three months after the software went
    on sale.

    ...

    Some experts said they expected hackers to begin using this
    vulnerability to break into computers within months. - AP
