Microsoft warns Windows 10 users to update immediately

Microsoft is warning Windows 10 users to update their operating system immediately because of two "critical" vulnerabilities. The company said the vulnerabilities are potentially "wormable," meaning affected computers could spread viruses and malware without any action on the user's part. There are "potentially hundreds of millions of vulnerable computers," Simon Pope, Microsoft's director of Incident Response, wrote in a blog post. — CNN

The family of the Dayton shooter published a flattering obituary of the gunman. Now they're apologizing

The family of the Dayton, Ohio, shooter published glowing obituaries of both the gunman and one of the first casualties in the massacre — his younger sister, 22-year-old Megan Betts. The obituaries were published Tuesday on the website for the Conner & Koch Life Celebration Home in Bellbrook, Ohio, but the remembrance for gunman Connor Betts was removed Wednesday at the family's request, according to the funeral home. Connor Betts' parents later updated the message on their son's obituary page. "Stephen and Moira Betts apologize that the wording of the obituary for their son Connor was insensitive in not acknowledging the terrible tragedy that he created," the message said. "In their grief, they presented the son that they knew which in no way reduces the horror of his last act. We are deeply sorry." — CNN

Wisconsin fugitive survives three years in makeshift bunker

A Wisconsin fugitive wanted on child sexual assault and child pornography charges hid out for more than three years in a makeshift bunker powered by solar panels and a pedal generator before a hunter stumbled onto him last week, police said. WSAW-TV reports that several months ago Thomas Nelson of Wausau found a bunker with a log door carved into an embankment on state land in the township of Ringle west of Wausau, about 145 miles north of Madison, the state capital. He became curious and returned to the bunker on Friday morning to see what was inside. The door was unlatched so he went inside. He discovered 44-year-old Jeremiah Button, who disappeared in February 2016 just weeks before he was scheduled to stand trial on child sexual assault and child pornography charges. — NBC News
