Windows users are being urged to install the June package of security patches from Microsoft.

The security update contains six patches which close 15 vulnerabilities found in a variety of Windows programs. The patches help to shut loopholes in Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, Windows Mail and Windows Vista. More than half the loopholes are rated as "critical" which often means they can be exploited without a PC owner's knowledge or consent.

So much for the supposedly super secure Vista:
Vista, the latest edition of Microsoft's operating system, gets a patch for itself which aims to stop malicious hackers exploiting a loophole to steal administrative passwords


That's a pretty dangerous security hole if they can swipe your admin passwords.

One reason to use a restricted account and only have an Admin account for installing stuff.

Yes but that is a long standing flaw in the Windows security model, you cannot expect users to understand why that is so dangerous when they have been brought up in a Windows centric world where running constantly as Admin is the norm.

Try and introduce them to a more secure model like Mac OSX or Linux for example, in particular use of the sudo model, and most Windows users just whine about having to put in their passwords so often.
