If you are tired and crabby, chances are you're responsible for keeping your Microsoft software patched. This week set a record, with a (not so) sweet 16 patches. While some see this as indication that Microsoft's stuff is fundamentally flawed, I see it differently.
Years ago I would agree that Microsoft first built the huge operating systems and apps and thought of security later. These days I see a huge effort to build safer software and fix what's already out. Is it perfect? Far from it. Is Microsoft doing its level best? I tend to think so.
But I'm not the expert. My esteemed IT readers are. School me on Microsoft security at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you haven't patched yet, you best get on it.
