An emergency patch has been issued by Microsoft to protect folks from some unnamed exploit.

Microsoft will rush out an emergency security patch for Windows users on Thursday.

The company offered few details on why it was releasing the software update, which is rated critical for users of Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. A critical flaw is worrisome, however, because it can be exploited by online attackers to seize control of the PC.



Also there has been news on the Vista front, with the date set for a service pack 2 beta release.

Microsoft is preparing a major update to its Vista operating system. Windows Vista Service Pack 2 will enter beta testing next week, the company has confirmed, with a public release date to follow.

As speculated earlier this week, the new Vista Service Pack 2 will incorporate all fixes released since Service Pack 1, along with a slew of new improvements aimed at increasing support for new hardware and technology standards.


Some folks havent even gotten the first service pack installed yet  :/

Is it me folks or was one of the major reasons for wanting folks to contact MS all the time the promised move away from having service packs, I thought the plan was to upgrade as you go with smaller more regular updates, and yet here we are back to the old ways, so it seems all the talk is mere hyperbole, something it seems with the failure of Vista to seize the market, we are seeing more clearly.

One study out shows that one third of all new PC's sold are being converted to XP by the purchaser, that does at least give some reassurance of educational standards globally  :lol:
