Microsoft Corp. has released a patch to fix a security flaw that could allow a hacker to gain complete control, in a matter of seconds, of a Web site running Windows 2000 Internet server software. The security flaw was discovered about two weeks ago in the software's Internet printing component by EEye Digital Security Inc. of Aliso Viejo while the company was testing the latest version of its security scanning software.

Microsoft says it waited to publicize the security flaw because it wanted to ensure that a single, downloadable update would solve any related problems. Its "patch" is now available at www.Microsoft.com /security/.

Microsoft, which learned about the flaws more than six months ago from researchers, said the only protective solution was to apply a patch it offered on its website. It assessed the threat to computer users as "critical," its highest rating.

When Microsoft Corp. learned recently that a software flaw had been made public and could prompt Internet attacks, it ordered a team to devote all its time to fixing the flaw and making the repair work with other products. Microsoft says that is the approach customers want and expect, but some computer security experts complain that the company's traditional method, which could take days or weeks, doesn't help fast enough.

By his own account, Marc Maiffret had been up to no good. In and out of several computer hacker groups, the high school dropout realized his life had to change one morning shortly after he turned 17 when he was awakened by an FBI agent holding a gun to his head. Today, at 21, Maiffret consults on computer matters with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other federal agencies and earns a six-figure salary at a privately held Aliso Viejo company he co-founded, EEye Digital Security Inc.
