Microsoft Compromises Security Again!

Microsoft has just confirmed that due to the issues arising from the recent security flaws in chips, it is requiring antivirus vendors to set a registry key in Windows to allow patching to occur. What this means is that if your particular antivirus does not set this registry key, or you did not set it yourself, then you will be BLOCKED from receiving security updates. That means security updates NOW, AND in the future! This is ridiculous! In effect, Microsoft is deciding that from now on unless you set this registry key your security will be compromised, regardless! Their heavy-handedness is getting out of hand!
