    The only way such a program would be "hack-proof" would be if it were written as an embedded system, otherwise you have holes in the language you're using, the network libraries, the OS, any extra stuff you have on there that is unnecessary, and even the device drivers.

    The only way this could be "unhackable" is if it was hardwired on a circuit board connected directly to the network and even then your schematic has to be perfect.

    Of course, if no one wants to hack you... is it really "unhackable"?

    Yeah, I'm having the same problem, just started happening recently although I thought it was just me. Error 0x800C0008 which tell me to check the time, which of course is correct already. I also noticed that some https sites now generate an error that "Revocation information for the security certificate for this site is not available. Do you want to proceed?", although the same sites work without warnings from other computers.

    I'm running Win2003 Enterprise with all patches/hotfixes.

    I did find a workaround to accessing Windows Update is to use a proxy server.... doing it this way will detect which updates you need and let you download them.
    Its still down for you two, as of 8:20 EST, is that correct?

    It should be accessable now, except persons running XP_SP2, may still have the redirect issue

    Theyre are no critical updates however , as of the middle of last week

    Note the word benifit

    Maybe they will look into it.

    Hmm odd indeed. This should have made it to the news.
    Somebody ring up The Sun/Mirror! (Seriously)
