There is a bug in the Windows Firewall that's installed by XP SP2, which can let users on the Internet access resources on your computer if you use a dial-up Internet connection. NOT a good thing. Microsoft released a critical update that fixes the problem. If you use dial-up, be sure you have it installed. See KB article 886185 for more info here

Down in the bayou, Bubba called an attorney and asked, "Is it true they're suin' the cigarette companies for causing people to get cancer?
"Sure is Bubba. But why you asking?"
"Cause what I want to know is, I was thinking, can I sue Budweiser for all them ugly women I've slept with?"

Im on dial up now but the price went down so I might not be for long. I want to say thanks for the info I have my pc set on auto update but this is good to know for some users.

Still its good they got it out for the people on dial-up.
