For the first time, computer security companies say users should download and use an unofficial patch for Windows provided by an individual. This is an earthquake in the world of Microsoft for many reasons :

  1. Microsoft is not any more the only trusted site about fixing (!) Windows
  2. the fix is open-source, and that's why security companies can trust it !!!
  3. Windows, a closed proprietary commercial operating system is fixed by an open-source free code... Wow.

I have this feeling that there's a manager at Microsoft, with a too high adrenaline level because of Ilfak Guilfanov, who is going to shake a bit his team...
