Patch Tuesday: XP Bells Tolling

Microsoft's bundle of monthly updates (which will hit early Wednesday Australian time) includes five planned patches, affecting all versions of Windows from XP onwards, as well as Silverlight (which is how Mac users get dragged in). So it's another case of reboot Wednesday.



    Shouldn't it read "For everyone who has NOT already moved on..."?

      Which is most of QLD Health and probably a few other govt agencies...

        corporate users can pay microsoft and still get patches and full support

      The patches are for XP onwards. Just the last one to include XP
