Microsoft Released A Critical Update For Windows

Yes, you read it right. It’s critical, so, you need to download the update and patch your Windows as soon as possible. Affected Windows version are:

  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4
  • Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
  • Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Service Pack 2
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1, and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for Itanium-based Systems, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with SP1 for Itanium-based Systems, and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with SP2 for Itanium-based Systems
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition Service Pack 2
  • Windows Vista (yes! Vista is vulnerable!)
  • Windows Vista x64 Edition

Here’s a snippet of their executive summary:

An attacker who successfully exploited the most severe of these vulnerabilities could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

We recommend that customers apply the update immediately.

It’s only a 1-day old update, and an attacker can make an exploit probably, in 2 to 3 days. So, what are you waiting for? Follow this link and update your Windows immediately.

That’s all!
