Much like a loving mother, Microsoft will let no harm come to Windows 7, making all copies of the OS, legitimate or otherwise (read: pirated) eligible for security updates. target="blank">Softpedia reports that Microsoft’s Director of Windows Client Enterprise Security said as much in a recent Q and A.
“Let me be clear: all security updates go to all users. Not only do all security updates go to all users' systems, but non-genuine Windows systems are able to install service packs, update rollups, and important reliability and application compatibility updates,” Cook stated.
Cook went on to claim that most security malware threats became issues after Microsoft had already released the security update addressing them, for example Conficker. He stressed that security breaches are most often due to lax oversight by owners and operators, not Microsoft.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
