As always, what seems like every month, we're hearing more and more horror stories of the Windows platform. Privacy concerns, advertisement concerns and so on. Now it's taken a much bigger turn. If you are on Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 Microsoft has released a security update for Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 for Internet Explorer (I know you're thinking..) who cares, who the hell is using I.E? well businesses really. the horrible truth about this particular update is that it's more of a "Update Tree" of updates. it's an SeCURRRity update that once installed will install another update that allows Internet Explorer, to display advertisements in the browser saying "UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 10 GOD DAMN IT!!!" now this is a rumor, the problem is, if you analyze the update information it says that the update will do this. but so far no one has been able to TRIGGER I.E into displaying the advertisement.
