Update your Windows machines

Microsoft released some out-of-band patches a few days ago. From your perspective as an individual computer user, they're not critical, but they are important, according to Microsoft's official terminology. From the perspective of being a responsible Netizen, you should do your bit asap. This patching only takes a few minutes and doesn't even require a reboot, so why not do it now?

Run Windows Update or Microsoft Update, depending on your version of Windows, or just visit update.microsoft.com, using Internet Explorer.

Gory details on Security Week, among many others.

[Added] Thanks, Jack, for catching the typo.
