    Microsoft concerned new 'wink' feature may open system up to attacks:

    Microsoft has suspended the beta testing of the next version of its MSN Messenger client because of a potential security problem, a company spokeswoman said Wednesday.

    Testers discovered a potential security issue in the early version of MSN Messenger 7, shortly after Microsoft made the Instant Messaging client available to a select group of testers over the weekend, according to postings on MSN Messenger enthusiast Web site Mess.be.
