Microsoft Patch Tuesday Brings Nine Patches
by Mirko Zorz - Tuesday, 11 October 2005.
As expected, Microsoft released several patches today. Eight of this month's Security Bulletins affect Microsoft Windows while one affects Exchange 2000 Server.

Three vulnerabilities are marked critical, four important and one moderate. Critical vulnerabilities are related to Windows and specifically DirectShow, Internet Explorer (IE), MSDC and COM+.

These updates are detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) and the Enterprise Scanning Tool (EST). Users are recommended to update as soon as possible.

If you want more information about these Security Bulletins do check out the TechNet Webcast tomorrow that will present a brief overview of the technical details of the October security bulletins followed by an extensive Q&A session that will give you the opportunity to ask questions and get answers from the Microsoft security experts.

Cloned, booby-trapped Dark Web sites steal bitcoins, login credentials

Apart from being a way for dissidents and journalists to do their business without being spotted and identified by "the powers that be", the Dark Web is also a place where criminals sell and buy illegal wares and services and, apparently, where they also get robbed by scammers.
