b) Security Threat Watch: Windows XP Service Pack 2 Aftermath Reports
Microsoft last week released Windows XP Service Pack 2. Many of the Windows
lists since then have been buzzing with reports of what works and what
breaks after service pack installation. It is interesting to see that
Microsoft removed raw socket support in XP SP2. A large topic of debate a
few years ago, people believed raw sockets would only promote malware and
worm activity. It seems Microsoft has given in to that way of thinking--and
also broke various security testing tools (such as NMap) in the process.
Before applying XP SP2, we suggest reviewing your system for any
security-related network testing tools, as they have a high possibility of
not functioning.
