Microsoft Discloses Non-Microsoft Bug

We're all pretty used to Microsoft coming clean with its bugs. We're less used to it disclosing bugs of others. In the case of a bug that affects both Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS), most versions of Windows are impacted.

The vulnerability could let a hacker use these network protocols to gain access to wireless access points. It's a pretty difficult hack to pull off and so far there've been no reports of successful attacks.
