Microsoft patches NT 4.0 security hole

Thanks to Lars S√łndergaard, Nathan Mercer and Michael Noonan for the tip: Microsoft has released a patch for Windows NT 4.0 that plugs a potential security hole. The patch prevents a malicious attack in which an attacker sends an RPC datagram to a server and spoofs the return address so that the datagram appears to have come from another server. While no customers have reported being affected by this bug, Microsoft has released a patch to address any potential risks.
