    Security Flaw-WindowsXP-DO YOUR UPDATES!

    Hello Everyone:

    There is a potentially -- really nasty - security flaw in MS Windows... Please execute Microsoft update and apply the latest security fixes ASAP. Make sure you run the update on all your client’s WindowsXP computers and Server.

    To execute Windows Update manually, open Internet Explorer and select Tools->Windows Update - you can use the "express" option if you wish.

    All machines loaded with Windows XP should have automatic download of Windows patches enabled - so the update should not take much time at all to implement.

    If you want to read more about the threat, please see: http://www.dhs.gov/dhspublic/display?content=5789
