WinD'ohs!

Two new Windows flaws folks should be aware of.

Well, one, mostly. Not sure how many are really running 2000, but just in case, it's there too.

The vmx.dll flaw is not patched. A completely updated and protected system is still vulnerable if you visit the wrong site. There's a line there to paste into the Run dialog box that will unregister the problem DLL, and keep you protected until Microsoft fixes the problem. Something may get broken on a few websites, but it's very rarely legitamtely used, so you will likely not notice any problems with any sites.
