    I can certainly understand why more & more folks are heading to linux, at least they seem to give a damn when informed of problems.

    I can't help but feel that is easy to say now, but if Linux ever got as big as Windows...

    Worryingly, how many times was worryingly worryingly used in this worryingly reported matter? ðŸ˜￾

    Just kidding but what's probably more worrying is how despite the warning, it wasn't publicised again during the last 18 years. Was it reported as fixed then?

    I don't think it was fixed, Microsoft seems to be saying both the 1997 exploit and this more recent one is not as serious as people believe it to be.

    I think this maybe the original security and defense blog post mentioned.

    Twice. (Which, I'll grant you, is one more time than it should have been - at least it wasn't "however," which is by far my most overused word!)
