Microsoft Update, accessible by the Panel in Windows Vista and Control 7

Microsoft has patched at least 22 vulnerabilities in security update package for July. The most serious problems corrected allows an attacker to completely control a Windows computer that is enabled with Bluetooth. The only limitation is the Bluetooth range, usually no more than a few meters.

A virus could be created to exploit the vulnerability and spread from one notebook to another. Microsoft has confirmed that the problem exists in versions of Windows Vista and 7.

Other flaws fixed in the package involve only the privilege escalation. A hacker will attempt to use a vulnerability of this type only when it has already logged in, but do not have the necessary privileges to perform the commands you want. This happens when the Windows user is limited , for example.

These may be used by viruses to ensure that the system is totally committed even from a user without administrative rights.

The updates can be installed through Microsoft Update, accessible through the Control Panel in Windows Vista and 7 or the Internet  if the system is Windows XP
