Unknown Security Hole Strikes Windows Platform

Windows users beware: some kind of security hole in just about every windows operating system is allowing hackers to severely compromise machines and there is apparently no patch currently. If I didn't use the platform, I'd find this hilarious. I hope everyone is thinking to themselves now, "and I'm going to trust who with all my secure data?"

UPDATE: You've been hacked! One of my machines has already been infected! I am pulling everything MSFT off the network immediately until I figure out what's going on. Nice work, Redmond.

Update on Arming Airline Pilots

Dr. Kahle has reminded me that Bruce Schneier's Cryptogram newsletter is always a must-read. Schneier weighs in on the subject of arming airline pilots, an idea so incredibly dumb that it's almost unbelievable. I have a bunch of reasons why I believe this, but Bruce does a far more elegant and complete job of refuting the notion that guns are "a disaster waiting to happen." It's worth a good look.
