FBI warns of security vulnerabilities in Windows XP

When the patch created by Microsoft for the security holes in the UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) module of Windows XP was released five days ago, confidential talks between the government and corporate representatives took place shortly afterwards in the USA.

The fear for the security of sensitive data was apparently greater than ever before. Now the FBI has also warned every user and every company to use the patch to update the operating system as quickly as possible or, if necessary, to take it offline temporarily. Administrators should pay particular attention to increased traffic on ports 1900 and 5000. This could indicate attempted attacks on the UPNP module. For all Windows XP users here again the patch published by Mircrosoft.
