        b: a usually humorous or sardonic literary style or form characterized by irony

        Do you note the Web Blog on Woody’s Site?

        https://www.askwoody.com/2020/january-2020-patch-tuesday-running-commentary-from-the-skeptics-corner/

        critical cryptographic vulnerability resides in Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016, and that the concern about this particular flaw is that it “makes trust vulnerable

        In other words YOU CAN NOT TRUST WINDOWS 10

        and yet mircosoft thinks differently

        from their site

        Comprehensive, built-in, ongoing protection**
        The most secure Windows ever, Windows 10 provides antivirus, firewall, ransomware, and Internet protections, all built-in, at no extra cost. And with Windows Hello, you can sign in quickly and securely using facial recognition or your fingerprint.2

        WINDOWS HELLO LEARN ABOUT SECURITY

        Is it not ironic that “most secure Windows” is actually the LEAST SECURE?

        irony: when a well established OS manufacturer protects their OS and end-user(s) against malware, then uses malware to upgrade, deceitfully change GUI buttons, syphon settings, revert settings and secure the malware within the OS.

        All in the name of ‘security’ 🙂 /rant

        With default/recommended automatic updates, Windows 10 was only theoretically vulnerable for mere minutes after details were announced. That’s one thing that makes it the most secure for most people (especially home users who have no interest in following security news).
