I came late to the modern Internet. Prior to 2000, I hadn't had a computer in my home since some old piece of carp that my nephew gave to me to play Wolfenstein 3D on. It was a 486 with Win 3.1, if I remember correctly. That was back in the early 90s. In 2000, I got a hand-me-down Pentium I 90 from my brother after he purchased a new Gateway system. This little gal had Win 98 on it. I got pretty proficient with Win 98. It's actually my fav version of MS Windows to this day. XP was way too buggy; the rest of the Wins since then were NOT impressive.
And I hadn't thought about this, but if you count from 2000 when I got that little Win 98 machine till today, I've actually been running Linux as my primary operating system nearly three times as long as I ran Windows. That's pretty neato when you think about it.
Unfortunately, since I have not kept up with newer Win versions or with newer UEFI baloney, I'm of very little help to my old IT customers... family and friends. When they call me nowadays with issues, I tell them, "Sorry... don't know nuttin' 'bout that carp."
And that's the way it is...
Pale Moon has been updated to version 28.8.3 as a bugfix and security update.
The update includes two DiD ("Defense-in-Depth") updates. A DiD update is s a fix that does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.
