Here's the story:<br><br><br>Microsoft Corp. disclosed Wednesday that it has found three security flaws — one critical — in its popular Internet audio and video software. <br><br>The flaws were found in Windows Media Player versions 6.4, 7.1 and in its newest Windows XP operating system. The most serious flaw can allow an attacker access to the user's system with the ability to add, change or delete data and perform other functions. <br><br>The company has posted on its Web site a software "patch" for users to download. <br><br>In addition, Microsoft said it has found four security flaws in its e-commerce Web-site building and management software. Two flaws were rated as critical. <br><br>The vulnerabilities affect Commerce Server 2000 and Commerce Server 2002, and could allow attackers to run commands of their choice. Microsoft has also posted a patch for those programs.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
