Microsoft today issued a patch for a critical vulnerability thought to have been fixed more than four years ago. The flaw had enabled the notorious Stuxnet attack back in 2010.
The Stuxnet worm was an exploit that was used against a nuclear facility in Iran back in 2010, in part by taking advantage of a vulnerability in Windows. The vulnerability that enabled Stuxnet was identified as CVE-2010-2568, which was thought to have been patched by Microsoft in October 2010. More than four years later, Hewlett-Packard's (HP) Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) has discovered that the CVE-2010-2568 fix was not, in fact, complete and the underlying vulnerability has remained exploitable the whole time.
