Comment microsoft too late again? (Score 1) 130

yeah thanks to zert for stepping in with the fix. microsoft did not have "time" to release a patch. for what i understand microsoft only released the patch a few days after the third party patch appeared online. coincidence or what? with microsoft being reluctant to change their monthly update cycle. attackers have taken advantage of this. i cant understand why they are reluctant to do this. microsoft just let their users systems be vulnerable and unprotected for several weeks until the new patch is updated. to me this is a concern especially now when zero-day vulnerabilities wont be left alone by the attackers. microsoft should do better to protect their users.
