MS Security Bulletins - 09 December

No patches today, instead we will have the normal transmission of all manner of beasties1.

I am REALLY bored about blogging about Microsoft and its security failings so I will try a different tack by paraphrasing a quote from the Outer Limits:

There is nothing wrong with your Personal Computer.

Do not attempt to patch it by any other means.

We are controlling transmission via Windows Updates.

If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume.

If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper.

We can reduce the focus to a soft blur, or sharpen it to crystal clarity.

We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical.

For the next few weeks, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear.

You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from inside the Borg Cube to... The Outer Limits."

1"All manner of beasties" is a paraphrase from BTVS: "I walk her home. Could be all manner of beasties between here and the Magic Box. Bit's bound to be safer with the Big Bad at her side." I am not sure, but the context fits Blood Ties from Season Five.
