Only one in every three users of Windows XP have installed Service Pack 2 that bolsters the system's security, Microsoft's chief security advisor Detlef Eckert said at the company's TechEd conference in Amsterdam.
The figure is disappointing, Eckert acknowledged in an interview with Silicon.com. " We know that the percentage of people using Windows XP SP 2 is lower than we would like it to be."
What is wrong with this world? Users have no
problem downloading virus infected porn and will go out of their way to get
their hands on illegal music downloads. Yet they seem incapable
of installing a simple security update.
Maybe Microsoft has to adopt the carrot and
the stick approach that doctors and dentists use so succesfully with children. Free porn for
users of systems running SP2. Would that make the world more secure?
Free when you download SP2
