      But what might the Linux developers make of this? I would love to hear about that — if there is anything to hear, that is.

      Maybe of interest to Linux server farms with lots of Windows VMs. Or maybe the easily duped managers…

      Well enough acronyms and such to give me a head ache.. I still don’t know why Mesa is a good thing. Maybe many of us could benefit from a Video driver tutorial or FAQ. TIA 😁

      Isn’t this a more enterprise level product? Not something for just a single or few computers but hundreds or thousands??

      As quoted by Woody

      Let’s hope the “improved version” works better than the old one — and that it takes less than ten months to respond to the problem. Meanwhile, ValdikSS warns in a tweet:

      At least 2 other vuln bootloaders exist, not revoked.

      More to come.

      Pale Moon: Release v28.8.3 (2020-02-18)
      This is a regular maintenance bugfix and security release.

      Changes/fixes:

      Fixed an issue in CSP blocking requests without a port for custom schemes.
      Fixed a potentially hazardous crash in layers.
      Fixed random crashes on some sites using IndexedDB.
      Changed the way the application can be invoked from the command-line to prevent a whole class of potential exploits involving modified omnijars.
      If your special-needs environment requires that you launch the browser with custom browser/gre omnijars from the command-line, you must set the UXP_CUSTOM_OMNI environment variable before launch from this point forward.
      Fixed an issue in the html parser after using HTML5 template tags, allowing JavaScript parsing and execution when it should not be allowed, risking XSS vulnerabilities on sites relying on correct operation of the browser. (CVE-2020-6798)
      Unified XUL Platform Mozilla Security Patch Summary: 2 fixed, 2 DiD, 10 not applicable.

      I no longer use FF but do use Palemoon a fork from when FF used the old (better) style extensions. I never do auto update and ALWAYS backup before an update. Unless FF has changed you could just copy the whole profile to a backup location and if a problem occurred write it back. An easier method (again assuming from a while ago) is to use the FEBE extension to backup, mine will backup every time I close the last open page by clicking on the X in the upper right. A very handy tool. This may not help in your present circumstances but for the future…

      I did not note how you are getting your email and what link you are clicking. Are you using Thunderbird or some such or Webmail??

      GeekUninstaller is FREE, portable and better choice.

      Free not according to their web site as far as I could see.

      Microsoft or others in the cybersecurity field could perform an invaluable service by seeking to publish reliable statistics on the actual number of computers affected by each exploit that has made it into the wild, compared to the total applicable computer population. Better yet would be formal studies to determine the actual probability of a PC’s getting infected from a given flaw if the flaw remains unpatched

      And that is called ‘wishful thinking’ 😄

      Just a note. Belarc seems to take at least a couple of days to come up to speed on new updates even though it d/ls ‘new’ updates every time.

      Now I use Glasswire paid version. Requires user observation to block MS “spying”, but does a lot of other things.

      They do not seem to advertise an unpaid version which is not unusual. The idea of a firewall for Android is interesting. I find the fact that they hide the fact that the price is for a SUBSCRIPTION buy leaving that info to the end and using the word BUY is enough to make me jump back.

      plausible for why HP was having problems. Whom the fix was for is still in question in my mind.
