    Android users at high risk from Chrome flaw


    By Susan Bradley

    Tuesday was the end of a most unusual election year in the U.S., but it was a typical patch week for Windows users, with all-to-common fixes for browsers, the kernel, and other Windows components.

    On the other hand, November is shaping up as a difficult month for smartphone users. A browser bug in Android phones requires extra care when selecting apps to download. And as reported in Macworld, the Apple App Store was flooded with bogus shopping applications.

    The full text of this column is posted at windowssecrets.com/patch-watch/android-users-at-high-risk-from-chrome-flaw/ (opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    In the article, Susan suggests disabling the "Diagnostic Tracking Service" but no such service is listed on my Windows 7 Pro (64-bit) system. (There are 3 "Diagnostic ..." services but that isn't one of them.) Is it only available in enterprise versions of Windows (and/or not Windows 7)?
