    No according below article windows pc's or phones are not effected.

    Does this FREAK attack affect me?
    Do you have an iPhone, an Android or a Mac OS X computer? It affects you.

    Do you visit websites like americanexpress.com, groupon.com, mit.edu, marriott.com, usajobs.gov, bloomberg.com or many others? It affects you.

    About 12% of websites are thought to be affected.

    I saw an article on Ars Technica indicating desktop Windows can be vulnerable, but I checked out my phone on WP 8.1 Update and it was secure.

    As of yesterday, Apple patched iOS and Mac OS X.

    Microsoft released a patch for desktop versions of Windows today, but Windows phones are still vulnerable.

    Android and all its fragmented variants are vulnerable.

    And BlackBerry phones are vulnerable, which is ironic, considering BlackBerry has established its identity on being the best-in-class provider of privacy and security in its products.

    My eyes have really been opened the past couple days to the advantages Apple has in being able to issue patches and bug fixes without going through carriers.

    I currently use a BlackBerry Q10 as my daily driver. One of the reasons I chose BlackBerry was because of its security and privacy features. But how secure can you really be when you have to wait for your carrier to approve every little OS update?

    Who knows how long it will before the rest of the major mobile platforms are able to get their patches out?

    I'm not sure I'd quite consider it "attacking our phones", as the phone remains intact. It's the data you're transmitting to certain sites that can be intercepted. But yes, Windows Phone is still vulnerable. Not sure if Windows 8.1 is, but Windows 10 is still vulnerable to it as well.
