    seems important enough to post here in our community … and this is in regard to installing "innocuous" print-drivers (on the fly) that can allow infestation of malware … seems microsoft has contained a rather substantial hole in their fabric.

    happened to come upon this article from arstechnica (dated 7/13/2016) … unsure if microsoft has created the patch or not. either way, wouldn't really matter … because not everyone updates religiously as they should … and the older operating systems no longer provide security updates from "yours-truly".
