Microsoft Internet Explorer Fix Includes Windows XP

How's that again? Well whaddya know?!:-)

I saw this on

"Microsoft announced Thursday it has patched a major security hole in its flagship Web browser, including old versions for Windows XP – a break from past statements.

The Redmond, Wash., software giant this weekend warned users that hackers were exploiting a new flaw in Internet Explorer, the default browser for much of the Web. The flaw attracted unusual attention because it also affected older versions of Internet Explorer used with Windows XP.

As of April  8, Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP and had said it would stop patching it. That means hackers, in theory, would be able to use those holes in cyberattacks in perpetuity.

But the company decided to make an exception in this case."
