    Despite the patch offered by Microsoft, the recently unveiled XP security hole is evidently not resolved. Not according to the FBI, at least.

    Steve Gibson is offering an easier approach to disabling the vulnerabilty than the manual instructions available through MS.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I also noticed that XP's automatic Update did not download and install the Dec. 20 patch. It must be manually downloaded. Microsoft has dropped the ball, again.
