    Hi,

    I went to the site and it says it is not that dangerous, but also that you should do your updates. Thanks for Christine for the one up! ;}

    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    Yes, the patch was released early...at first Microsoft said it was a mistake...so I was waiting to confirm before posting for you all....see a note I got from a techie friend yesterday:


    This is the text from that message:

    An early version of a security fix for a Windows flaw that is being used as a conduit for cyberattacks was prematurely posted online by a Microsoft employee.

    "It really was an inadvertent thing that happened," Fry Wilson said. "We have the security update on a fast track...(and) somebody accidentally posted a prerelease version on a community site. It has been taken down, and we don't recommend customers use it--it is not the version that we will be releasing on Tuesday."

    However, found it is the correct patch and everyone should do windows update ASAP.
