The Computerworld story, "Microsoft will update Windows Update to stymie Flame-like attacks," which posted to the newswire Wednesday, has been changed on the wire at the request of Computerworld. This is the link to the revised story, which has new 22nd and 23rd paragraphs: http://www.idgns.com/news.nsf/0/852573C40069388200257A150070B2B1.

The altered paragraphs read:

Because updates to Windows Update don't rely on users having set the mechanism to automatically receive and install all fixes, everyone who runs the service will receive the update. Windows Update updates are installed whenever the service is engaged, whether automatically, manually or the in-between mode that only notifies users of impending updates.

Only PC owners who have disabled the service and never use it -- experts have long suspected that users running counterfeit copies of Windows avoid it because they fear being found out -- will not be migrated to the new, more restrictive certificate model.
