Windows 7: First Patch for Windows 7 SP1 RTM Will Fix Critical Vulnerability

What I don't understand is why people can't grasp that software gets updated all the time for all sorts of issues and reasons. This is the normal in the life of software. As someone once put it - if things were perfect we'd still be using version 1.0

And oh btw..... cough cough.... Microsoft isn't the ONLY software company to update/patch it's products

Anyway I'm not surprised to see updates coming our way; business as usual.

I love it when the feathers are ruffled but I like the input from the learned ones it just shows me a "little knowledge is a dangerous thing"

How many updates make a service pack? That is to say how many grains of rice make a 'pile'?

You have one grain, a couple or a pair of grains, a few, but how many do you need to make a 'pile'?

Call it an update, a hotfix or call it a service pack - just make my pc secure!

Yeah, there's only one way to go about it. With all of the different hardware configurations and then the tinkering around and the installations of programs that can't all be tested by Microsoft to ensure that they'll integrate perfectly into the OS, the only way to do it is to roll out updates as they come along. To restate, there's a lot of frickin code and there are a lot of people who like to exploit that code for nefarious or even harmless reasons. I subscribe to a lot of exploit mailing lists, you'd be surprised at how many exploits roll through every day.

Software is not perfect. Never has been, never will be. If it's made by man, it's going to have issues. Getting them fixed is more important to me than getting it absolutely perfect on day 1. Every OS that I've ever used, has patches. This includes Windows, OSX, Linux, Unix, Solaris, etc.

Of course to be fair, with Linux, you are updating the OS with the latest security fixes, as well as software upgrades, documentation changes and such for almost every single piece of software also installed on the box too. So, it's getting updates for Firefox, for Open Office, the GIMP, etc.

But nonetheless, running Linux can results in lots of updates depending especially on what type of distro you are running (Fedora=bleeding edge=tons of updates) (CentOS=enterprise stable=much smaller number of updates).

Well the truth is that cars do have hundreds of vulnerabilies in them and thousands of people a day do die in them Those damn rubber tires that lose grip of the road, got flat or explode for one... THe untrustworthy or incapable person controlling them for another.

So until they get cars perfect, don't ever expect software to be perfect (Since software is ALWAYS compared to cars for some reason)
