Re: Why oh why

Because, as soon as the software company releases the fix, the bad guys will be rumaging through the changes, looking for what has changed and seeing if they can break the old code...

With the fair warning about what has been found, and fixed, the user has a chance to understand how important the update is and what they have to be aware of.
