Microsoft – Rumours of our Black Screen of Death are greatly exagerated

Nice, the epruption over Microsoft”s “Black Screen of Death” seems to be that NO its not related to any Security Updates but YES, “we do know that ‘black screen’ behavior is associated with some malware families such as Daonol.” My mate Aiden had already reported that of the hundreds of Microsoft PC’s that have passed through the company he works for (poor lad) they have NEVER had the “Black Screen of Death” issue, unless caused by faulty graphics drivers.

Microsoft’s MSRC reveals there take on it.

So 1] PREVX when you dislike “proprietary” software as much as us please give us well researched facts,  ie; discuss Windows problems with MS first.
     2] Everyone Else Use a strong operating system in the first place and keep it updated, any version of SELinux should do.
