    A 17-year-old bug in Windows will be patched by Microsoft in its latest security update.
    The February update for Windows will close the loophole that dates from the time of the DOS operating system. First appearing in Windows NT 3.1, the vulnerability has been carried over into almost every version of Windows that has appeared since.

    Is this the same vulnerability that was mentioned in another news a few days ago which does not affect 64-bit systems, or did they discover another one?
