Re: Unofficial Microsoft patches help hackers, not security

From my blog:

""[Unofficial patches are available, as is a leaked official patch]
[Unofficial patches are merely used by hackers as a tool to patch machines
they've compromised, to stop other hackers hacking the same machine,
although the machine is still accessable to the hacker.] [The consumer goes
along to Windows Update on Tuesday and doesn't think they need a patch,
because Microsoft tells them its not needed. Little does the consumer know
their machine was patched by a hacker, who now has control over their
computer network.]""

It means the unofficial patch is as harmful as the vulnerability and exploit
code its self.
