You may have heard of Microsoft Update’s debacle past Tuesday, with two critical Windows vulnerabilities disclosed when it was too late for this patching cycle:

I said “is exploited“, rather than “can be exploited”, because both these 0 day vulnerabilities are being actively exploited in the wild.
I also deleted “malicious” near “web sites”, because exploits for the latter vulnerability are being massively infiltrated inside legit web sites using automated SQL injection attacks.
Give yourself a Christmas gift: if there’s a best moment for switching to a safe or to a safer browser, that’s now.

    Preaching to the choir! But thanks. As I read this via my RSS, I was just in the process of rooting out the remains of IE on our computer…AGAIN, which someone in my family RE-installed…after all my work to get rid of it! Now, it’s been running in silently, behind Firefox, screwing up everything. Ugh. Even WITHOUT all the bugs, etc., it’s a pain in and of itself.
