Submission + - Years-Old Windows Vulnerabilities Still Exploited (itworld.com)

jfruh writes: "Microsoft can celebrate a genuine achievement: the company, once notorious for insecure products, didn't rate a single entry on Kaspersky Lab's latest list of 10 top vulnerabilities. But because Windows in particular has such staying power, many older unpatched systems still hanging on offer holes for attackers. For instance, Microsoft issued the MS08-067 patch for the Server Service vulnerability in October 2008; today, four years after it's been "fixed," it's still one of the most commonly searched for exploits among hackers."
