Patch Windows Now

So, Microsoft recently released an "out of cycle" patch for all versions of Windows because this problem was so severe that a cracker could actually take over control of your computer.


Ho hum.

Isn't that basically the same as pretty much every other vulnerability Windows has? If we worried every time Windows was vulnerable we would never get anything done. Announcing that Windows has a vulnerability that allows someone to take over your machine is like saying there is a MAC application that will let you play music or paint a picture.

It's not all that uncommon.

So, that leads me to think... what's really up? There must be something else going on with this patch to have them react this way.

Hmmm.... inquiring minds want to know.
