Windows I guess it's Windows-flaw-week or something. First, we had the Internet Explorer vulnerability used in the Google attack, and now we have a bug that's been sitting undetected in Windows NT for 17 years. The bug can be used to escalate privileges, but from what I understand, it only works locally (although that isn't made clear).

Win 3.0 supported real mode. win 31 removed real mode support.


True, win3.x had real vs. "enhanced" mode - I should've specified that I meant win16 apps running under win32.
