We'll roll this patch out tomorrow morning on 1900 clients. Let's see if this works...
What's the problem with releasing MS updates on a different day to Tuesday?
they norm have an patch day so company's can test it first before it auto roles out happens
I'm not seeing this on Windows Update. Does it have to be installed separately?
It won't be released until 7pm tonight, GMT+1 or +2, as far as I know.
It's unusual because releasing an out-of-cycle patch means the exploit is pretty severe and you wouldn't want to have to admit that, would you?
hey at least they patch it...
unlike Apple, they need to release a whole new OS version with "better features" that are mostly patches
and worst of it all... Apple makes you pay for those
EDIT: not talking about the iPhone btw
And what exactly is Win7 if not Vista Re-Visited?
Come on, stop the Apple bashing, this is about a problem with Windows!
I just installed it. It immediately downloaded and installed in just a few seconds during shutdown and restart just as a rather large MS fix should.
Available at 7pm tonight? Just go ahead and d/l the damned thing already!
I enjoyed the Apple bashing made my day lol but for serious flaws like this M$ should of pushed the patch out ASAP for sys admins to test and shortly after to the clients. Waiting an entire month! gave way to much time to crackers to develop malware to take advantage of said flaw. Issues like this should be publisied by M$ to teh client and have crit pop-ups occur advising user of issue and to install update to fix. (BUT NOT take focus away from full screen apps, that just pissed me off)
I truly worried about Apple owners when crackers decide to start hitting them as they already are especially the iphone and ipad.
apple user.. holy **** I've been had!
windows user.. what a newbie.. I've had my account ridden like a dog in heat and don't even break a sweat anymore
its alright saying release the patch straight away, but they need to examine the bug, make sure they don't introduce another bug, and not break things in general.
I like patches, without them my jeans would fall down.
Perfectly stated, I tested alot for Trackmania (the game by NADEO) and one problem they had alot was when they fixed one thing it introduced another problem (they were trying to keep old versions intact and add new features)... the larger the code the more complicated it gets and "knock on effects" from fixes become apparent.
Good on them for doing things properly rather than rushing things out for moaners.
