    Exploit code for a known security flaw in Microsoft (Quote, Chart) Windows 2000 has been posted online, putting millions of users at risk of a PC hijack.

    Less than a week after Microsoft released a fix for an "important" privilege elevation vulnerability in the Windows 2000 Utility Manager feature, hackers have reverse-engineered the patch and released the code that could lead to an exploit.

    Blargh! Maybe I should stick with 98 for now. :p (Or maybe buy WinNT 4.0? Does this vulnerability also exist in previous versions of NT?)
