This all comes on the heels of a fairly rare move by Microsoft last week to issue a patch outside the normal monthly schedule. That one dealt with a flaw in Vista and other Windows operating systems in handling animated cursor files. More at Microsoft's Security Bulletin site.
I want to highlight a story on CBSNews.com that's important to anyone using a newer version of the Windows operating system, which I know is many of you. It outlines the critical nature of four new patches designed to fix serious security flaws. Sure, it's a pain to restart your machine once these updates cycle through, but better safe than sorry. (These ones actually took less time to download than others in the past.)
