Microsoft to patch software driver vulnerability
Microsoft has warned that a faulty driver used for copy protection could allow a hacker to gain high-level access to a PC.
The problem lies with a driver called secdrv.sys, which is part Macrovision's SafeDisc software included with Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP. The software, which can block unauthorized copying of some media, also ships with Windows Vista, but that OS is not affected.
