But I have e-mailed Microsoft, and the usual response is:
"Unfortunatly we will not be providing a patch for the exploit described in yuor e-mail for WMP 8. If you are concerned about the security risk of this exploit please upgrade yuor computer to WMP9 and use the patch provided for WMP9 from auto update."
Although no one can do much, the maximum they can do with this exploit is take a look at your media libary.
One fix is to remove the WMP9 codec, but then you wont be able to play WMP9 tracks. This codec is an Active X control in Internet Explorer.
If the above opens your drives... Then you are not patched.
But as said. I am sticking with WMP 8, becuaseit is much more stable and does not include Digital Rights Management. No offence to anyone, but I want to play my OWN music on my OWN computer! Thats all.
