Microsoft fix plugs 34 holes

Written by Fuad Abazovic

In 13 urgent updates
Not only did the Service Pack 1 for windows 7 arrive on February 22 as we mentioned here, but Microsoft followed it up with a a massive fix that plugs a total of 33 holes.

The update is live for two days now and we noticed that our computers and laptops running Windows 7 have 13 security critical updates. Knowing Microsoft's record with security holes, you don't mess with critical stuff, but it
caught our eye that these updates are coming some two weeks before the big Windows 7 Service pack 1.

If you do have Windows 7 make sure you check if you have some updates that need to be installed, as they will at least make you feel more secure.

You can get more details here.

I'm trying to understand why you are using past tense for a future date.

It is currently the 11/02/2011 and obviously the 22/2/2011 is Eleven days away.

I guess you must be talking about the Release Candidate version and not the final version.

I guess the security patches come in after service pack 1 is installed?

I think he meant to say "Not only did Microsoft announce that the Service Pack 1 for windows 7 will arrive on February 22...."

Same here. Bugger had me checking my calendar. Thought I might have gotten a bit drunker than I thought last night and lost some days. :-*

They've been trying to predict the future of IT so hard that they got stuck there.
Get back to the present boys!
