Researcher: No emergency patch for critical Windows bug

vr villa

improbable thinking?

micro-weenie has a great excuse not to patch a 'defined and known' problem...

quoting:

"A security researcher has downplayed the significance of publicly released attack code exploiting a critical vulnerability in newer versions of Windows, saying it isn't reliable enough to force Microsoft to issue an emergency patch."

So, if it is a defined security problem that only works (let's say for arguments sake) 10% of the time...

In 5 days time at just a 10% success rate, how many computers can be affected??

with 1,000,000 computers as a theoretical number, that would be 100,000. Not an impossible number in 5 days.

Wonder why I don't use whine-doze

featuring....

I think you overlooked a current microsoft term to customers...

Sorry, you misunderstood... But, the nuclear explosion was not a bug, it was a feature...

We aim to improve on that feature with the next release...

We will call it 'Vista'...

If everything you know is wrong...

Take heart...

I never considered you 'Bush lovers...' (those are very infrequent on the far left side of the Pacific (England/Britain and Euro in between)...

The poster of the diatribe, btw, probably never read Ayn Rand, and doubtfully correctly knows much of anything ( to include: maners, civility and good humour.)

Keeping in mind one of my most liked quotes:

If everything you know is wrong... You know nothing.

Well, keep up the good work. Even though sometimes I disagree, you are a source of good information.

Hope you read this before the hang-over hits.

I might say I have found something they are qualified for...

Microsoft kicks Ubuntu update in the hardy herons

Microsoft updates 'faster' than ...

Hmmm????

Having kept track of Microsoft 'updates' over the last few years...

and monitoring the ones that are years old, that have yet to be acknowledge...

and, that Microsoft has acknowledged that Active X (or whatever they may want to call it) can never be made secure...

It must have been the Redmond gang that paid to have that 'truly and honest'

survey taken and tallied.

Of COURSE!! I do not doubt its validity...

Just like I know the media reports all the facts, honestly... (yeah! right!)
