Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for February 2010
It looks as if I've been away here for a long time... oh, wait... I have been. All because of housing problems and also a lot of computer problems. Strange things happen when you get a cup of apple juice over your keyboard...;) Now that we have a very nice new laptop thing could be better here again. So, it's almost three months later and in this time I hope you have updated your computer with the latest Windows updates and patches. To make sure here's the list of February, which was a bit big this month. For February Microsoft has 5 "critical", 7 "important" and 1 "moderate" patches.
