Unpatched Windows is Like Leaving Your Car Door Open in a Sketchy Parking Garage at Night with Wads of Cash in the Driver’s Seat

Unpatched Windows is Like Leaving Your Car Door Open in a Sketchy Parking Garage at Night with Wads of Cash in the Driver’s Seat

b2ap3_thumbnail_special_character_400.jpgWe’ve all seen the various accent marks, or “diacritical marks,” used in languages all over the world.
