The bug had been present in every version of Windows since 95, IBM said.

Attackers could exploit the bug to remotely control a PC, and so users are being urged to download updates.

MS patching a Windows 95 is pretty impressive after sales service, though I wouldn't imagine anyone still uses it.

I do, but not as much as XP! :)

It is impressive & makes my decision to go with Apple instead of MS after Atari was going out of biz because at that time Apple seemed to support older things better, seem like a huge mistake. :fishsmack:

That particular bug has existed since Windows 95, but patches were only released for Windows Vista and up.
