I did manage to exploit my XP machine with metasploit a few weeks ago, it had absolutely no SP's installed. But about 2 minutes later I got a reboot message. I'm guessing because of the buffer overflow. Also, the blue taskbar suddenly changed into classic gray.
Is it possible that ms08-067 just gotten outdated because of all the Microsoft updates and improvements?
