MS08-67 released out of the patch cycle, new blaster coming up?

A newly discovery vulnerability made Microsoft release a security patch aside from it’s usual cycle, the notorious Patch Tuesday. This “Patch Tuesday” is normally every second Tuesday of the month.

MS08-067 fixes a bug in the RPC handling of the Windows Server service.

The bug was deemed as “critical” on pre-Vista machines, which is still the majority of Windows clients.

Microsoft to enter the clouds

Microsoft is entering the cloud computing zone pretty soon. It was announced yesterday and will hit the public a month from now with it’s new OS, Windows Clouds (yeh.).

It’s feeling the ppressure from easy to use, browser only, applications such as Gmail, google docs and the like.

I wish Microsoft (or anyone) would come out with an enterprise cloud platform, not on the Internet. I am sure there are more users who wish to make a storage cloud on their network. Or am I the only one?

Thanks,
Michael
