Thread: MS Critical update released today

  1. #1
    Ian D Guest

    Default MS Critical update released today

    Actually the update is critical for XP, etc., but only
    important for Vista, providing UAC is enabled and
    not blindly authorized for each request. Also, a
    firewall will reduce the risk.

    What I found really interesting, is that it says in the
    FAQ that users of the Windows 7 pre-beta should
    also apply the update. Windows 7, that is!

    FYI, there are no Windows 7 beta testers who frequent this Windows Vista newsgroup.

    does this vulnerability affect Windows XP Embedded?

    Yes it would, since XP Embedded is based on the same binaries as XP.
