Default New Kernel Vulnerability Discovered in Vista

One of the key things that many point to with Vista is the amount of hacks and viruses that can take advantage of holes in the design and security of the OS. Despite the fact that Vista isn't alone in having security issues, what was described as a huge hole in open source software including Linux was discovered in May, it still gets more press for issues than the other operating systems available.

The latest significant issue with operating system security again falls on Vista's shoulders with a new kernel vulnerability that has been discovered. The vulnerability was discovered by Thomas Uterleitner from the Austrian security company Phion. Friday Unterleitner announced that he had warned Microsoft about the flaw in October, but a fix would not be offered until the next Vista service pack was launched.
