Mobile application security vulnerability report

Propellorheads everywhere just can't resist upgrading to the latest and greatest operating systems and downloading and installing the latest and greatest versions of BIOSes. Intel panders to these geeky needs by releasing a new BIOS rev for just about all its mobos every month or so. Shame then that those users who have installed the latest and greatest Win98SE should find to their dismay that it is incompatible with Chipzilla's Seattle2 mobo in the USB department. The Intel support website carries the following caveat: "A halt during shutdown has been discovered only when running WIN 98 SE on BIOS version P12. As a workaround to this halt, users running WIN 98 SE should use the BIOS version P11. Any WIN 98 SE user wishing to continue using BIOS version P12, should enter BIOS P12 setup and change Legacy USB support to 'Enabled'. A new BIOS is being prepared that will resolve this issue." Some Toshiba notebooks are also reported to suffer a hang during shutdown when using Win98SE, so this looks like a Microsoft feature rather than an Intel one.. ®
