Time to update windows again.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Microsoft Corp. on Wednesday warned about a serious flaw in all versions of its popular Windows software that could allow hackers to seize control of a person's computer when victims read e-mails or visit Web sites.

I really doesnt matter what Microsoft does, if someone is smart enough, or dumb enough depending on how you look at it, you can set up a webpage or an email to hack or crash just about anyones computer. That is the pitfalls of Windows.

Yeah, no other OS's and or hardware devices require updates. Especially Motherboards, Cell Phones, Routers Linux or other devices.
