+ - Microsoft U-turns on XP support and patches IE flaw->

nk497 writes: Microsoft has issued a patch for XP only three weeks after saying it would no longer support the aging OS. Last month's Patch Tuesday updates were supposed to be the last Windows XP ever got, but a serious flaw hitting all versions of Internet Explorer forced Microsoft to issue another fix.

Adrienne Hall of Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing said that the seriousness of the flaw had been "overblown" because it happened so close to the end of support for XP. However, to keep users safe, Microsoft has made an "exception", suggesting XP users shouldn't hope it happens again.
