Most of us do it on a weekly basis...
The majority of us have become comfortable with it just as we have most of our online tasks...
It's time to take pause...if you are a Windows User that is.
A recent story told of a new or re-engineered trojan that was allowing Russian, African and possibly US hackers access to bank accounts across the globe.
And as the media is fond of withholding, this isn't a Computer Problem...
This is a Microsoft Windows Problem.
Reports differ greatly but many report that millions are going to be stolen if they have not been already. Will they "patch" it?
Probably, until someone comes up with something new...some 15 year-old kid will have it ready within hours of the patch.
There is no sense in preaching to The Choir...you all know the sermon chapter and verse...
I won't bore you with the sermon.
Just let your Windows-using friends that Microsoft has again allowed thievery and shenanigans to reign supreme within the plastic, wire and metal that makes up their computers.
Windows User's are not all morons or lazy....or apathetic.
Some have gotten a clue.

Pass it on.
