    Microsoft on Tuesday warned users of a number of its subscription programs of a potential security flaw affecting the software they use for downloads.

    The Redmond, Wash.-based software giant strongly urged customers using the File Transfer Manager (FTM) program to upgrade to the newest version. Microsoft released the new version, FTM, in late June. Affected customers can download the update from Microsoft's FTM Web site.

    ... Microsoft did not post a broader bulletin or distribute a warning to the 500,000 people subscribing to the company's security alerts service.
