'Roy Wilson' said previously:
| M$ software is riddled with security holes (and outright bugs).
Agreed. I'm the last person who would defend them.
| not going to be fixed without a ground-up approach, [...]
Isn't that what NT is supposed to be?
(Answer: In some ways yes, but in most of the important ways, no.)
| BTW, don't use the M$ patch I mention above if you're on ICQ - Port
| 4000 is the one ICQ uses.
Of course, from what I hear, ICQ's software makes M$ software look like
Fort Knox, at least from a security standpoint. :-)
On a separate note...
BTW, has anyone heard anything on the vulnerability of OS/2's TCP/IP
stack to these varied attacks? I see Win95, *BSD, Linux, Solaris, and
even routers mentioned all the time, but I can't remember the last time
I've seen OS/2 mentioned. Is it because OS/2's TCP/IP is really solid,
or is it because nobody has cared to try these attacks against it?
