Microsoft yesterday warned of seven security vulnerabilities, two of which it rated as 'critical'.

The company has issued updates for all seven flaws. These include MS04-022, which addresses a vulnerability in Task Scheduler that could allow code execution.

Microsoft explained that if a user is logged on with administrative privileges, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system, including installing programs, viewing, changing or deleting data, or creating new accounts with full privileges.
