The investigations have disclosed several organized hacker groups from
Eastern Europe, specifically Russia and the Ukraine, that have penetrated
U.S. e-commerce computer systems by exploiting vulnerabilities in
unpatched Microsoft Windows NT operating systems. These vulnerabilities
were originally reported and addressed in Microsoft Security Bulletins
MS98-004 (re-released in MS99-025), MS00-014, and MS00-008. As early as
1998, Microsoft discovered these vulnerabilities and developed and
publicized patches to fix them. Computer users can download these patches
from Microsoft for free.
