Default Antivirus update affects medical computers.

Guess who got to stay late and make delayed data entries? Certainly not the MBA who chose to put crucial data on windows.

McAfee, oh dear McAfee, how I could never miss thee!

With how sting int things can get around medical systems these days, I'm surprised they can keep the Windows machines that up to date, that fast, loool. Man, that must've been a nasty time to go to work.

I see a great future for blackhats and kiddies in this.
Why would Intel be foolish enough to run their company with such crappy software?

We had quite a few customers (Business) who were affected ... Fixing it is pretty easy, but if you have 50+ machines .... :-/

This problem has occurred before, a couple of years ago with AVG throwing away user32.dll, that was a lot harder to fix since there are so many different (incompatible) versions of user32.dll, and unlike UNIX systems getting the version is not so easy.

And a few years before that there was Norton which had a similar problem ...
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.

That's nothing a couple o' pints wouldn't fix.
