If your Windows PC still runs Apple's QuickTime, it's time to find another video player.

The Department of Homeland Security just issued a warning that recommends removing QuickTime for Windows after cybersecurity firm Trend Micro reported finding two "critical vulnerabilities" in the program, which Apple will no longer be providing security updates for.

So scary! :cartmanscared:

In other news, Microsoft has stopped production of the Xbox 360. It's hard to say that after 10 years we're gonna miss such a great gaming console. :cartmansad:

Firefox 46 has been released today. This could be very interesting.

I am here :)

I use Apple with Mac OS X, so I use Safari. I also use Safari with iOS. I understand many people who use Windows like the Firefox browser. I hope the new version "46" helps a lot of people. Thanks for posting, angeldeb82.

For me, "Firefox" will always relate to one of my favorite Clint Eastwood Movies ;)

You know, it's kinda funny that the "Get Windows 10" popup appeared during a live weather broadcast on KCCI 8 in Des Moines, Iowa, where a forecaster was working and then playing along with the Windows 10 Upgrade thing. Kinda weird. :?

So there was a massive hacking of e-mails at Google, Yahoo, Hotmail, Microsoft and more. So it is advised for people to change their e-mail password now! Here is a link about it.

Heads-up! We got another upgrade patch for Windows 10! This time, it's KB3150513. For those of you who still don't want the Windows 10 upgrade, you can hide both KB3150513 and KB3035583 as a way to keep your computer safe. :!:

Just a reminder that Google Chrome will block Flash on all websites except 10 (including YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, Yahoo!, and Amazon) by the end of the year. I guess we're still lucky, huh? :cartmansmile:

Or, as Southpark.CC.Com is one of the last old-school BBS's, @Google: Make it 11 sites, with #11 being "South Park Studios powered by HULU."

The U.S. military is still using 8-inch floppy disks to coordinate nuclear force operations. I feel speechless... I don't know what to say.
