Updates 2017-01-10

Happy New Year, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday.

The typical computer should see roughly 1.5gb in updates today. We’re starting out the new year with a much smaller number of updates, but they’re still quite large. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, Internet Explorer, Edge, Exchange, MS Office and MSRT (~1.1gb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Apple released updates for AirPort Base Station. This includes security updates. Follow these directions to install this update:
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201519

Google Chrome OS 55.0.2883.105 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 24.0.0.194 is a security update. Flash is being actively replaced with HTML5 on most sites and services, however, so unless you’re 110% positive you need it for critical functions, you should remove it instead. And, within those browsers that have it embedded (Chrome, Edge, Internet Explorer 11+) disable it. It’s just not worth the risk.

Mac: http://12pd.com/click?flashmac

Don’t forget to check your mobile devices, too! Many updates will also apply to your tablet, phone, kindle or television – so check your device-appropriate App Store and install updates.

Important Notes

Everything above this section should be checked by everyone on every computer. Chances are good that close to every single computer you touch will be affected by those updates. This is not the case with the items below, though you should still check each line item below to see if it applies to software you have installed.

Please remember that while I list many different applications within these updates, most people should ONLY install updates for a program if they already have a previous version of that program installed.

It is essential to maintain all the applications you have installed on your computer, but often you can minimize the time investment and the potential for exploitation simply by uninstalling software you do not need.

Also note that using the applications own “check for updates” function, when available, will best preserve your current settings, and often avoid any crapware that might come with a fresh installer. Use this option if it’s available to you.

Finally, if you’re sick of doing this all yourself, let me! Call or email me any time, and we can set you up with subscription SaferPC updates which will be installed each month whenever necessary. Click, call or email for more details:

Updates 2016-01-12

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! The typical computer should see roughly 250mb in updates today. Let’s get started.

If you’re still running Windows 8 (not 8.1), you will no longer receive Windows updates. You MUST install 8.1 to continue to receive security updates for Windows.

Today is the last day for updates to “older” versions of Internet Explorer. Historically, this means that a critical security issue will be discovered and exploited as early as tomorrow. Upgrade Internet Explorer to the latest version supported by your operating system NOW. Yes, this means you’ll lose DQSD. ๐Ÿ™ Even if you’re not using Internet Explorer as your primary browser, many applications including Office, Windows Explorer and third party components will still utilize Internet Explorer “under the hood”. Thus, whether you want it or not, you MUST install the current version to ensure you continue to receive security updates that *do* impact you.

Windows 10 will be switched from an “optional” update to an “important” update for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 today, which means that it will attempt to automatically install whenever you install updates (and sometimes just for fun at 3am) and will also download (3gb+!) whether or not you plan to install it.

The privacy controls for some features are buried in places most people won’t look, and the defaults for some options are very insecure. The delay and potential issues you may experience from neglecting to either update or block the update can have serious repercussions.

My recommendation is to make some time to install Windows 10 as soon as possible. Typically the installation will take between 2 and 6 hours, with no ability to do other things on your computer while it’s installing. During installation you will be prompted with several option pages to enable/disable options and features. Disable them all. Yes, every single one. Uncheck every box and slide every slider “off”. Immediately after installation disable Cortana’s web-integration functionality, then go to All Settings and review every single option. If you have problems with Windows 10, you can revert to your existing OS.

If you are running software that’s not compatible with Windows 10, or need to prevent the installation for some other reason (such as my wife’s patented “I don’t wanna”) then your best option is to use GWX Control Panel to block the icon and disable OS upgrades (the first two options).

Now back to our regular patch notes.

Microsoft released 18 updates to address vulnerabilities in Windows, Edge, Internet Explorer, MS Office, MSRT, Silverlight, Visual Basic, and Windows Live Essentials (~125mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, QuickTime and iTunes to address security vulnerabilities. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

Adobe AIR 20.0.0.233 is a security update.

Please remember that while I list many different applications within these updates, most people should ONLY install updates for a program if they already have a previous version of that program installed.

It is essential to maintain all the applications you have installed on your computer, but often you can minimize the time investment and the potential for exploitation simply by uninstalling software you do not need.

Also note that using the applications own “check for updates” function, when available, will best preserve your current settings, and often avoid any crapware that might come with a fresh installer. Use this option if it’s available to you.

Finally, if you’re sick of doing this all yourself, let me! Call or email me any time, and we can set you up with subscription SaferPC updates which will be installed each month whenever necessary. Click, call or email for more details:
