As you might have noticed, the Internet is one great market, and guess what's for sale now! MPack! This is your standard-issue-web-attack-kit used by lots of hackers all around the world, and it can be yours now, for only $400! Shipping price not included! All you need to do is buy this software and you can start hacking 
away, providing you have the knowledge, of  course...

It's nice and easy to use, you just go and infect a website with it and then, users that have accessed it and have no protection or low defenses can become your toys. If properly used, this software can make you take over one's computer. And guess what's the greatest part! Yep! Windows is vulnerable to it, with 3 flaws to be blamed for it. Then there are QuickTime and WinzZIp bugs (one for each other) that can be exploited. As I've seen on NetworkWorld, here are the "holes" that must be closed, first for Windows: Microsoft XML Core Services overflow, critical flaw for Windows XP SP2, Windows 200 SP4 and Vista / WebViewFolderIcon overflow, critical flaw for Windows XP SP1 and SP2 and Windows 2000 SP4 / ANI overflow, critical flaw for Windows XP SP2, Windows 2000 SP 4 and Vista. Quicktime has an overflow and a critical flaw for Quicktime Player 7.1.3 on Windows XP/2000 while WinZIp has an overflow as well and a critical flaw for WinZIp 10 prior to build 7245 on Windows.

These are a lot of vulnerabilities, but all can be fixed if you update. Just get the newest version of all these programs and be sure to have your anti-virus up-to-date and hackers will not be able to get into you system, using these flaws. Also update your OS. I recommend you to browse the Internet for more info on cyber-defense and see what you can do to stay as secure as possible.
