Microsoft is four months late

Microsoft released a patch this Tuesday which patched the mouse, as people had begun to make widespread attacks on users computers. That’s the good news, the bad news is that Microsoft knew of this security hole four months ago after Determina informed them. However, Microsoft responded by saying, “The amount of time taken to patch was appropriate given the level of quality we were trying to release with.” Yep, you heard it, Microsoft says it takes four months to make sure that the quality of a security hole is good quality, yet the patch doesn’t cover components such as, Realtex. And to make matters worse, they knew about this before releasing the patch that took four months to build.

Do they understand what happens when there is a hole in a Windows operating system that can be exploited by a hacker?
