Microsoft is sounding a red alert to Windows 10 users, warning them to update their operating systems immediately.

The company, in a blog post Tuesday, warned of two "critical" vulnerabilities that rival the previous "BlueKeep" crisis. As with that bug, the new issues are described as "wormable," meaning hackers could use them to spread malware from one machine to another without any interaction from the user.

As a side note, Windows 7 was fully updated a couple of weeks ago, now updating 25 essential & 4 optional updates!

Just musing, is there another use for Windows® than downloading updates???

Completed the 29 updates for Win 7, it restarts & now there are 44 updates needed, In think I've installed 500 to 1,000 updates since using Win7 for anything else! :confused:

I will need to update windows 10 and then run CCleaner on it so I can get my game performance back up to par, which will then let me play Star Ocean 4 and a bunch of others I got on Steam that aren't available in OS X. Just need to drag the 70 lb. computer out from between my desk and my left speaker so I can reinstall the 500 GB SSD.

My soul for the money to get a 9900k hackintosh going with NVMe...

Windows 98 is way more secure: Microsoft has issued ZERO critical security updates for Windows 98 this year!

Nope, no need to thank me for being so helpful!
