Important information about windows security update RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I was asked by the OneCare team to post this announcement about the Security Update released by Microsoft today outside of the normal monthly Windows Critical Update schedule.


    The same information was posted by the OneCare team to the blog:



    Microsoft has released a security update to help protect Windows PCs against a recently identified security risk (Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-067<http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/ms08-067.mspxl>). If your OneCare status is Good (green) then Windows Live OneCare is helping to protect your computer against this threat by automatically applying the latest security patches and virus signature updates. If your OneCare status is At Risk (red or yellow) then your computer is potentially vulnerable. Please follow the OneCare Actions items to help protect your computer.


    To verify that you have all the latest Windows security updates, launch Internet Explorer, then click on Tools --> Windows Update.
