Windows: Patch me if you can

by Volker Weber

CNET:

On Tuesday, the software giant released a fix for a networking flaw that affects every computer running Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Server 2003. If left unpatched, the security hole could allow a worm to spread quickly throughout the Internet, causing an incident similar to the MSBlast attack last summer.

This is how you protect your PC.

Leave it to Microsoft! I am concerned with all the holes they haven't found! There seems to be an unlimited supply built into their software!

That's what you get when you leave your windows open. Jaguars and panthers, however, are sure to keep them pesky worms away!
