Windows Has ‘Huge’ Hole…

Oh that’s really surprising. My question is when has it not ever had a ‘huge hole’? But “this hole makes every OS Microsfot has released ‘vulnerable’“. So what is Mircosoft doing about it? They have “not yet released an official patch to correct the flaw. ‘We are working closely with our antivirus partners and aiding law enforcement in its investigation,” the company said. In the meantime, Microsoft said it was urging customers to be careful opening e-mail or following web links from untrusted sources.” Oh, well thanks–that’s really comforting and makes me feel safe…I’ll make sure to “be careful opening e-mail or following web links from untrusted sources.” So when they release a patch does their advice remain applicable? Should I still click on the link to download the patch because they are an ‘untrusted source’? That is assuming they release a patch because they might just say, “Aw, screw it! The patch for this is Windows Vista–everybody go buy Windows Vista.” Or is this the downfall for Microsoft? The Achilles Heel? Who knows? Only time will tell…or something like that.

One thought on “Windows Has ‘Huge’ Hole…

  1. […] I remember when the Windows code was leaked on the internet and thinking to how it happened–then I remembered that Windows has a huge hole, or that it is a hole. But anyways I guess this was the guy that did it, Willian Genovese Jr., living in Connecticut or “illwill.” He was sentenced to two years Prison on Friday. For “stealing the source code to Microsoft’s Windows Operating System, along with many other prized products. Genovese posted a message on his Web site offering the code for sale on the same day that Microsoft learned significant portions of its source code were stolen. Genovese was arrested when an investigator for an online security company hired by Microsoft and an undercover FBI agent downloaded the stolen source code from his Web site after sending him electronic payments for it.” One thing is for sure I agree with my friend Chrono Tron about Microsoft getting a deal with the guy to learn of holes in their security and then plug it.  Because if, “Microsoft is not sure as to how the source code was stolen…”  and yet it was this guy must  know something that they don’t know.
