ABSTRACT
This article discusses the SANS Institute's 2004 list of the 20 most critical Internet security vulnerabilities. The list includes 10 threats in Windows-based systems and 10 in Unix-based systems. The 10 Windows vulnerabilities are: Web servers and services, workstation service, Windows remote access services, Microsoft SQL Server database, Windows authentication, Web browsers, file-sharing applications, Windows Local Security Authority Subsystem Service exposures, Microsoft Outlook mail client, and instant messaging. Users cannot just turn all these things off and have much of a system left, so as the SANS commentary suggests, adopting aggressive patching strategies is the Windows user's only hope for survival.
