  • Microsoft Warns of 3 'Critical' Flaws

    SEATTLE (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. (NasdaqNM:MSFT - news), the world's largest software maker, warned on Tuesday that three "critical"-rated flaws in the Windows operating system and other programs could allow hackers to sneak into personal computers and snoop on sensitive data.

    Rest of the story

    Edited to add: I'm trying to d/l the patches right now. Half the world must be doing the same, because the Windows update page is sloooooowwwww.

          It's far and away the biggest and therefore attacked quite often.
