It was a genuine Windows emergency!

Hey, Windows users... did you feel it? Did you feel the big one? On Friday, Microsoft pushed out an emergency 'out of cycle' update for Internet Explorer. I guess since they're running those pricy IE9 commercials during The X-Factor in the USA, they thought... "oh f!, we better fix the GAPING SECURITY FLAW!"

Damn straight, homie. You gotta put a rubber on that to keep the zero-day off your box, aight?

What's it all about, Alfie? Victim computers are compromised just by visiting a malicious Website, which gives attackers the same privileges on the machine as the current user. --writing credit to Metasploit exploit developer "sinn3r" from the "Rapid7 blog."

Now what? Is it safe to get back into the pool that Microsoft is constantly peeing in? I'd say yes. But then again... I'm existential. Strange, that got a blue line. Maybe I'm not doing it right.

P.S. I got an iPhone 5 but I'm not going to keep it.
