Summary
  • Microsoft Corp. admits that its engineers included a secret password in some of its Internet software. The rogue code includes the phrase 'Netscape engineers are weenies!' and can be used to illicitly gain access to myriad Internet sites around the world. The affected code is in a three-year old piece of software. Microsoft urges customers to delete the file, called 'dvwssr.dll,' which contains the code. The firm said the problem does not touch Internet servers running Windows 2000 or its server extensions included in Frontpage 2000.
