M$ Callously Neglects Security Of Its Users

The Good Old Days when M$ could ship crapware with no security at all are apparently returning in M$’s mind…“Microsoft has failed to deliver a fix for a remotely exploitable flaw in Internet Explorer 8, despite being informed of the vulnerability in October 2013.” With a quarter of the world’s PCs wide open to remote exploitation and knowing this information would be publicized. M$ didn’t care enough to patch the vulnerability even though several Patch Tuesdays have passed.

Do you really want this company in charge of any of your IT? Use software made by people who care like Debian. Not only do they care to ship good software but they allow you to examine, modify and distribute the software at no charge.

See After seven months and no Microsoft patch, Internet Explorer 8 vulnerability is revealed.

    My son has used Samsung Android-devices since 2010 and have had no security issues because he too has used Linux on pc. He knows how important is to avoid those apps not coming from reliable application sources.

    Surely moving from Windows to Android-devices have saved tens of millions of people from that terrible malware world of Redmond. Those you are still using pc should also move to Linux. There’s no need to suffer pain caused by terrible insecure Windows OS.
