As scary as Heartbleed was this past Spring, it looks like virtually every Microsoft Windows user is in for a little deja vu. Microsoft just released a critical patch for a huge server vulnerability—one that affects every current version of Windows out there.
And at least according to Microsoft, this patch is the only way to fend off any rogue third parties trying to make use of the vulnerability. So if you use Windows 2003/2008/2012, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, or Windows RT, head over to Microsoft's Support site and download the patch ASAP. Seriously. Do it. Now. [Microsoft via The Next Web]
