First vulnerability in Windows Me
Shortly after Windows ME was launched, the first security flaw was discovered. The weak point lies in the included web TV function. When this application is running, the system can crash or reboot by sending data on certain ports.
Microsoft has been aware of this problem since Windows 98 SE, but has not yet taken any measures to prevent it Eliminate the weak point. Fortunately (for us) the web TV function is only available in the US version and therefore the German versions are not affected by the whole thing.
