    Posted by Clement Lecigne, Threat Analysis Group On Wednesday, February 27th, we reported two 0-day vulnerabilities — previously publicly-...


    I don't run Windows 7. but lots of folks do. This may be concerning to them.

    Apparently not a problem for Windows 10.

    Given Microsoft history, I expect that Win 10 has a number of vulnerabilities that are currently known only to hackers, NSA, and foreign agencies.

    No need to run screaming with your hair on fire just yet.

    Number formats and units may be chosen at random depending on what day it is.
    I reserve the right to use a number system with any integer base without prior notice.
    Generalizations are understood to be "often" true, but not true in every case.

      I run Win7 but 64 bit so not an issue.

        But what if I like running around screaming.

              I don't use google, nor run any kind of windows. I remain unconcerned.

                This is why I won't use anything newer than Windows 3.1. No one bothers with it so the risk is going down.
