15 arrested in N.Y. Playland melee over head scarves

Two people were charged with felony assault and two police rangers were injured during a melee that broke out Tuesday at Playland Amusement Park when Muslim visitors became angry that the park was enforcing its ban on headgear by prohibiting the women from wearing their traditional head coverings on some rides.

The park was crowded with Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, one of Islam’s two major holidays.

Police from at least nine agencies converged on the park after county police sought assistance in responding to the disturbance, which involved 30 to 40 people.

. . .

Parks officials “painstakingly” told the organizer about the headgear ban, said Tartaglia. But he said that the rules might not have been communicated by the organizer to some attendees.

As usual, when confronted with pesky infidel rules that conflict with Sharia law, Muslims get angry and indignant. And then they do what they do best, rampage and riot! Hey, at least no one was strapped with explosives, so it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.

Microsoft Sets A New Record

It’s the biggest Patch Tuesday ever!

Microsoft Again Sets Record With Massive Patch

For the third time this year, Microsoft has issued a record-setting security patch.

The company’s December Bulletin Release includes 17 security bulletins addressing 40 vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office, Windows, Internet Explorer, SharePoint Server and Exchange.

Jeff Prince, CTO of ConSentry sees NAS as evolving technology that won’t just be about initial host assessment. It was only in October that Microsoft set the record it just broke, with 16 security bulletins. There were however fewer individual vulnerabilities this month than in October (49). And it was two months earlier, in August, that the company had set its previous record, with 14 bulletins to address 34 vulnerabilities.

The huge October patch was supposed to front-load the task of patching so that IT administrators had a lighter schedule over the holidays. So much for that idea.

At least the December crop of bulletins brings only two “critical” ones. Fourteen are rated “important” and one is rated “moderate.”

The two critical bulletins, MS10-090 and MS10-091, addressing vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer and Windows respectively, should be deployed first, according to Microsoft.
