Microsoft Patches the Animated Cursor Flaw Early

Speaking of Microsoft, the company issued 7 patches on Tuesday which is one week early for the monthly patch cycle.  The most critical of the critical patches addressed the animated cursor hole that was publicized over the last several weeks.  This affected multiple versions of Windows including Vista, probably the most secure version of Windows yet.  Two other patches affected Vista as well.  The move was prompted over reports that hackers were heavily exploiting the flaw.  One trick was an email promising nude photos of Britney Spears.  Click a link, compromise your machine.  Patches are available through Windows Update.  Get yours today.
