Microsoft doesn't want to patch early

by Nikola Strahija on February 2nd, 2006 With Friday's threat from the Kama Sutra worm (aka Blackworm), determined to overwrite documents on infected computers, internet security community is on the watch. Well, all except Microsoft.


Microsoft company has decided against updating its Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool before the next regularly-scheduled release of February 14.

-Microsoft releases a new version of the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool every month on the second Tuesday of the month together with the other security updates, wrote developers on the group's blog. -The next version, targeted for release on February 14th, will detect and remove this worm.'

Neither the blog nor the company gave any more details, so it's up to users to protect themselves the best they can.
