A serious flaw exists in certain versions of the popular Sendmail open-source and commercial e-mail software, but fixes are available, researchers said Wednesday.
The vulnerability, which was reported by Mark Dowd at Internet Security Systems, could allow a remote attacker to take control of a PC. To do this, the intruder would send arbitrary code at carefully crafted time intervals to the SMTP mail server, according to alerts from security providers ISS and FrSirt.
An attack could interfere with or intercept mail delivery, permit the intruder to tamper with other programs and data on the vulnerable system, and potentially provide access to other systems on the affected machine's network.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
