Critical Flaw Affecting Every Version Of Windows Patched

If you haven't updated your PC in a while, now would be a good time to do so. This vulnerability affects every version of Windows so, if you have a Microsoft OS installed, you need to patch your box.

Microsoft said on its regularly scheduled Patch Tuesday that users on Windows Vista and later -- including Windows 10 -- should patch as soon as possible to prevent attackers from exploiting a flaw in how the operating system handles media files. The "critical" bulletin (MS16-027) patches an issue that could allow an attacker to remotely execute code or malware as the logged-in user. Those who are logged in as an administrator are at the greatest risk.
