\Windows 7 reintroduces remote BSoD

David Gerard (12369) writes | more than 5 years ago

Microsoft 8

David Gerard writes "Remember the good old days of the 1990s, when you could teardrop attack any Windows user who'd annoyed you and bluescreen them? Microsoft reintroduces this popular feature in Windows 7, courtesy the rewritten TCP/IP and SMB2 stacks. Well done, guys! Another one for the Windows 7 Drinking Game."

A bug in a beta release, who'd have thunk it? (1)

I'm not MS fanboi, but FFS at least wait until the final OS image is released until the sniping starts.

The RTM is already released a month ago.

This is a bug in the RTM gold master, i.e. the actual release.

What everyone else said, plus if you RTFA you'll see that the vulnerability applies to Vista as well.

ooh, you're right! So I'm being very unfair to Windows 7 - the remote BSoD is actually an exciting new Vista feature.

That is what I said, thank you. (1)

This bug has been added to the Vista Failure Log [slashdot.org] . I thought that OS was over, but it keeps giving. I have also added this flaw to the Windows 7 Failure Log [slashdot.org] , which is as much a continuation of the Vista Failure Log as Windows 7 is a continuation of Vista.

I double plus good your plus and raise you a failed company [slashdot.org] , like everyone else says.
