Microsoft Patch Tuesday is coming. Have you done your shopping?
Me, I like to get back together with all my old friends from the Windows 7 launch parties I went to. Good times. Good. Times.
On Tuesday, Microsoft will issue ten Security Bulletins addressing 34 vulnerabilities. Some of these are rated "Critical," which means that a hacker could take control of an infected computer.Â After our talk with Mark Bowden about Conficker, it seems possible that these patches are both important and ultimately futile, since many people don't pay attention to these kinds of things and many are using an illegal form of Windows. So they've got all the vulnerability and no access to patches.
