    Huge XP Security Hole


    On monday night, Tech TV announced an extremely serious security flaw with ALL Windows XP installations (pre SP1). Leo Laporte of The Screen Savers demonstrated how this could wipe out entire directories.

    Scroll down to Boot Camp Tip section to read about it

    If you look at the Video Highlights section on that page, there's footage from the show showing Leo demonstrating the vulnerability


    Another explanation of the security hole is here:
