  • Microsoft Security Response Center: The biggest malware threat comes from zero-days; delayed patches, not so much

    Of course your greatest security threat lies between the ears and in the twitching clicking fingers of people at the console. That hasn’t changed, and likely never will.

    What’s startling to me, though, is that numbers from Microsoft now confirm that waiting 30 days to install those monthly patches realistically doesn’t put you at greater risk for getting clobbered by a cretin.

    Thx, Susan!
