Re: The (Windows) sky is falling! (again ...)

If that Russian hacker makes his way into that network and is able to takeover the sewing machine what rogue clothing could we expect?  🙂

 

The weakest link breaks the chain. I remind myself that all the time. Most times it is the actual user. In this case definitely tech.

Have a care, Alec. You could get stitched up for patching Cragin's post so that
you can needle him and embroider the discussion.

(Gloria once considered getting a networked sewing machine. I warned her that, if
we connected it to our home network, there was a good chance she'd be quilting
something and it would start spelling out "YOU HAVE NEW MAIL" ...)

Re: The (Windows) sky is falling! (again ...)

Can anyone advise if the patches for win xp includes all embedded win xp or only Windows XP Embedded SP3 x86? 

Can this patch be used for any win xp embedded os?

Re: The (Windows) sky is falling! (again ...)

Does Microsoft provide any verification tools to check if the os is still vulnerable eg after patch?

Simply ask the Banks why the majority of them are still running Windows XP on there ATMs?

 

Why, cost?
