List of Unpatched Windows Flaws Grows
The list of unpatched security vulnerabilities in products embedded in the Microsoft Windows operating system just got longer.
Researchers at eEye Digital Security have flagged another high-severity flaw affecting users of two widely used Microsoft Corp. products-the Internet Explorer browser and the Windows Media Player application.
In all, eEye's "upcoming advisories" page lists seven unfixed flaws, all carrying a high-severity rating because of the remote code execution possibilities. Two of the seven vulnerabilities are more than 100 days overdue and affect the dominant IE browser.
