"Never put off today that which..." What, it's Bill Gates? Fuck it, then...I'm saving my breath.
So, Microsoft is just now getting around to patching a bug or two...critical ones...25 of them to be exact. And, no, these aren't new problems; they're old ones...17 years old, Only now is the Redmond Behemoth just now getting around to fixing, them per the BBC. And, why is that? Because, it took an outside third party from Google to examine the code (not presumably write it for 30 years), to notice the freaking problem:
The February update for Windows will close the loophole that dates from the time of the DOS operating system.
First appearing in Windows NT 3.1, the vulnerability has been carried over into almost every version of Windows that has appeared since.
The monthly security update will also tackle a further 25 holes in Windows, five of which are rated as "critical".
Proof that, yet again, Bill Gates hates us all..
Good luck with that, fellas. Which, is once again, why I'm very pleased to report that since 1990, this brain has been hard-wired by Steve Jobs' evil army.
Sure, it makes me a corporate drone, but at least when Steve Jobs rips me off, I know the product will at least fucking work.
