Patch fixes vulnerability in wireless networking cards
|A while back, there was a big uproar over the fact that some wireless
networking adapters built into laptop computers had a vulnerability due to
the fact that they start scanning automatically for wireless networks when
you reboot the computer or when it wakes up from hibernation. Microsoft has
released a patch for XP SP2 machines to fix the problem, but it wasn't
included with the Patch Tuesday updates. You have to manually download and
install it, at least at this time. If you're using a laptop with embedded
wireless, it's a good idea to do so. You can get it here:
