"Microsoft has issued a "critical" warning over a newly-discovered flaw in Windows.
In a security advisory, the company warned of a loophole that could be used by malicious hackers to steal private information or hijack computers.Affected Software Includes
The bug potentially affects every user of the Internet Explorer web browser - around 900 million people worldwide.
Microsoft has issued a software patch to defend against attacks, and said it was working to develop a long-term fix.
Although the flaw is actually inside Windows itself, it only appears to affect the way that Internet Explorer handles some web pages and documents.
It has issued a security patch to block any attempts to use it. All Windows users - particularly those who use Internet Explorer - are being urged to download the fix while the company's security team develop a way to plug the hole permanently."

(it looks like you've been announced by your GP that you are in a critical life condition!!)
Those are happening quite often, most of them you don't even know about!
And yes there's also lots of issues with Linux, Mac, etc...
and when you see the multiple hacking tools available and the probable very unsecure behavior I suspect you have, then you should really not worry that much.
Example unsecure behaviour: connecting to any public wireless, to your friend's network, etc...
