Keep your system patched or else...

Hi folks,

an article here on the fact that attackers are getting faster and faster at using flaws just after the patches are announced.

Attack code comes on heels of Microsoft patches: "Just a day after Microsoft released patches for vulnerabilities in some of its software, code designed to take advantage of those weaknesses appeared on the Internet.
Most of the patches that Microsoft issued were for flaws that were widely known. But at least two flaws were made public for the first time on Tuesday as part of the company's monthly security update.
Security firms reported finding the code on Wednesday. The exploit code for previously unknown flaws means hackers could use the code to pounce on computer systems with managers who are slow to apply patches. "

The conclusion? Ensure your windows system is patched regularly. You can read more at Windows Update Info
