Thanks For The Help Microsoft … NOT

March 9th, 2010 | Posted in Current Events, Internet, Opinion, Security, Software | 2 Comments

I just read an article about a bug found in Windows XP.

Apparently the vulnerability involves the way that VBScript interacts with Windows Help files (when you’re using Internet Explorer, though anyone with any sense stopped doing that long ago) and can be triggered by pressing F1 after visiting a malicious Web site that uses a specially crafted dialog box.

Microsoft’s answer?  They advise XP users not to hit F1.  BIIIG help idiots.  How about patching the damned bug instead of giving stupid advice?
