Microsoft's scheduled security update for Windows includes a fix to a potentially risky bug that would allow an attacker to spoof a certificate, making it look like it came from a trusted source.
Microsoft typically releases security and other updates once a month and waited until Tuesday to disclose the flaw and the NSA's involvement. In other words, I wouldn't stop everything I'm doing to immediately update my home system the second Microsoft's patch drops-which already happened, if you're reading this (KB4528760 in Windows Update).
Whatever route you decide to take - whether that's new PCs, upgrading to Windows 10, or even something more radical like switching to an alternative OS - it's best not to hang around given that after January 14, which is just a day away now, Windows 7 is not a safe place to be. Unless Microsoft backtracks and opts to release future fixes when huge vulnerabilities are uncovered, this is the last round of security updates you'll receive for your operating system.
Hackers exploited weaknesses in unpatched versions of Windows 7, as well as to a lesser extent the earlier Windows XP, which Microsoft had stopped supporting.
In the past, it was made clear that the NSA exploited Windows loopholes, without bothering to let Microsoft know that said loopholes were live in effect. The 10-year-old operating system officially reaches end-of-life tomorrow, although it will get this extraordinarily serious patch, whatever it turns out to be.
And that's our advice too: if you can, upgrade your PC or laptop to Windows 10.
In order to run Windows 10, PCs must have a 1GHz processor, 16GB of hard drive space, and 1GB of RAM memory.
