Those rotten patches

This week came more news of newly-discovered security flaws in MS Windows and newly-offered patches available for download from MS. Whenever a new patch comes out, there is sort of an incubation period while the marketplace decides whether the cure is worse than the disease. In my little office, I can't begin to keep track of all that stuff, but this article from ZDNet says maybe I should not even try. The bottom line on the advice offered is - "Instead of spending time and money implementing every patch that Microsoft releases, stick to the service packs and bolster your security policy."

Well, I can do that.
