Microsoft Plugs Critical Windows Security Hole
Microsoft today issued two software updates to remedy security vulnerabilities in its Windows operating systems, including one that criminal groups have been targeting lately to break into and steal data from vulnerable machines.

One of the patches fixes a critical flaw found in Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 systems that also have Internet Explorer 7 installed. This vulnerability is not present in Windows Vista. For more than a month now, cyber criminals have been blasting out spam e-mails containing malicious links or Adobe PDF documents that try to install spyware programs when users click the links or open the files.

This month's updates have required me to reboot all my machines after installing. There aren't many updates this month, but it's highly recommended by Microsoft that you get these.
