It used to be M$ would announce a bunch of vulnerabilities once a month and the malware artists would get a standing start to sabotage the world’s IT. Today the clock is ticking on four vulnerabilities announced four days before Patch Tuesday. That means the bad guys have a five-day headstart on most folks using that other OS. Time to quit that. I suggest using Debian GNU/Linux. It works for you not the bad guys. I remember when my employer used that other OS and I had to update systems currently in use all over the building… Of course M$ announced the vulnerabilities in the middle of our work day so I had to wait hours until folks had gone home for dinner to unleash the hounds, updating 7 servers and 100 clients. This week I would be losing sleep on day 0-Friday, day 1-Saturday, day 2-Sunday, day 3-Monday, day 4-Tuesday and into day 5-Wednesday to hunt down the reluctant updaters… I am glad I am not on the job in an M$ shop this week.
UPDATE Here’s what SANS thinks of the vulnerabilities. Several that M$ thinks are “important” are classed as “critical” by SANS, things like remote code execution in your word-processor.
