Security of Auto Updates:

Re: Windows Update:
Are the auto-update procedures particularly susceptible to mischief?
If the Reg values for WUServer was, in fact,
"WUServer"=http://hackyourupdate.com/
"WUStatusServer"=http://hackyourupdate.com/
What if the DCOM vulnerability had been used to drop these reg keys instead
of dropping a worm.
What, do you think, are the protections within the client to determine a
clever substitute and prevent? Ditto for all Auto Updates.
Thanks,
Ron Cohen
