Microsoft Warns Of Major New Win 7 & Win XP Exploit, Releases Urgent Patch

Microsoft is warning users of older versions of Windows to urgently apply a Windows Update today to protect against a potential widespread attack. The software giant has patched a critical remote code execution vulnerability in Remote Desktop Services that exists in Windows XP, Windows 7, and server versions like Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008. Microsoft is taking the highly unusual approach of releasing patches for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 even though both operating systems are out of support. Windows XP users will have to manually download the update from Microsoft’s update catalog.

Users of these operating systems are urged to take action immediately.

I don't believe them, I don't trust them and I think they are up to no good at all.

It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.

It does, doesn't it?

Anyway, this issue is real, and those still using these old operating systems definitely should apply the patch/upgrade.

I've had 2 calls. Last night, and today, by people claiming to be from microsoft and want to know about my computer. I hung up both times.

Maybe some nefarious ppl are using htis "Urgent" thing to scare ppl.
