Microsoft just released a patch for a giant fucking security hole in XP where you can get infected by a worm just by viewing an image.
If you do it manually like I do its the one something about "Graphics Rendering Engine"

You can read more about it here
http://isc.sans.org/

What's messed up is those microsoft bastards won't even make a patch for Win98/ ME users Mad Exclamation
Don't say "they should just upgrade", because I know a few people that work for non-profit companys and its not within their budget to upgrade.

In computer terms, one hour ago is ancient history...

I thought that was only applied to blog time.
So that means your computer is already ancient.

Indeed, just got the latest greatest video card but it was already obsolete before I went out the door.

Good thing I'm switching to Linux soonish. Even if they made a patch for 98, I couldn't get it. Fucker's aren't too fond of piracy.

Though, I'll propably lose my mind using something that isn't DOS based.
