* MS firewall flawed

Techworld has news on Microsoft announcing a flaw in its firewall:

The flaw is in the way Windows Firewall displays exception entries, created by administrators to allow incoming network connections. If an exception is created in the Registry, it won't be displayed in the Windows Firewall user interface, meaning users might not be able to spot the exception entry.

It's unlikely that such a Registry entry would be created under ordinary circumstances, and a user couldn't create one without administrator privileges, Microsoft said. "It is more likely that an attacker who has already compromised the system would create such malformed registry entries with intent to confuse a user," Microsoft said in the advisory.
