cluberti Posted July 5, 2009 Share Posted July 5, 2009 You're forgetting the drive-by exploits like Sasser that exist because NT likes to show its services to the outer world. Conficker also uses a drive-by exploit, though the situation wasn't the same because a patch was out for months before the malware appeared. Still, the services are an attack vector.Those haven't existed for awhile, although it is correct. Also, Windows (since SP2, at least) has a firewall enabled at least on the host to mitigate these. Obviously Vista and Win7 do a far better job at this than 2000 or XP did, which I'd also agree to. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
