I do not have anything to add to the author’s words, so I’ll just post the link.
Can someone explain to me why people still use Microsoft Windows? This cursor exploit is yet another example of Microsoft not caring about security. According to an article on Microsoft’s own TechNet, they have known about this vulnerability since December 20, 2006. They are only patching it now because it is being exploited in the wild. Microsoft claims they were going to patch it with the next batch of monthly patches. Even if that is true, it would still be two months to late. The point is this …..
STOP USING MICROSOFT SOFTWARE.
They do not care about your security. I thought, maybe, they had started to change their ways with SP2 and
Vista. Obviously not. Use Linux, BSD, or even a Mac. Anything is better than Windows.
