Yahoo is running a disturbing story about a secret backdoor password hidden away in Microsoft's IIS.
While the software giant acknowledges that the function was "absolutely against our policy," it plans to alert customers as soon as possible with an e-mail bulletin and advisory published on its corporate Web site. The company is also asking customers to delete the computer file called "dvwssr.dll", which contains the offending code. It is installed on Microsoft's Internet-server software with FrontPage 98 extensions.While there are no reports of abuse as of yet, this certainly doesn't bode well for Microsoft's image, especially with them already reeling from jabs over WinXP.
