January 26, 2009 Microsoft Security Windows 0

New to the botnet scene is Conficker, a botnet that exploits a critical security vulnerability Microsoft actually patched in late October. It may be time for Microsoft to begin forcing critical security updates upon home users.

via Time for forced updates? Conficker botnet makes us wonder – Ars Technica.

this is totally bogus..guess what?  It’s mainly in eastern Asia and southern America where the priacy rates are really really high AND businesses which are typcially slow to patch anyway…most home users have automatic updates turned on and also the us infection rate is 1%.  It’s not the home users this time..it’s the businesses..however NOBODY should have upodates forced upon them.
