Updates 2017-05-09

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday.

This month brings some downright scary news in the security world.

Intel announced they made a “minor coding error” in their CPUs designed for Enterprise deployment, which allows unauthenticated third parties to control pretty much every aspect of their computers. Oops.

Microsoft released a critical out-of-band security update yesterday, the day before Patch Tuesday, due to the severity of the bug in the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine (a component used by Microsoft firewalls, Windows Defender, Microsoft Security Essentials and other Microsoft security products). If you’re running Windows 10 the update should be have been installed automatically for you during the definition update process. If running an older version of Windows, it’ll be installed for you today when you install the rest of Windows Updates. You are going to install updates today, right?

Have I Been Pwned announced that another billion (with a B) accounts have been released on the web. If nothing else, consider this a reminder that if you haven’t started using a password manager yet, you’re really only hurting yourself.

The Windows 10 Creators Update (aka 1703, aka TH4) has been out about a month now and is remarkably stable. This major upgrade takes a few hours to install but improves responsiveness and corrects the app reinstall bug that has plagued previous builds of Windows 10. Windows 10 version 1507 (aka 10240) is now End-of-Life, which means that it will no longer receive important security updates. If you’re still running this version of Windows you must upgrade to at least version 1511 (10586) to continue to receive security updates. Use the installer here to get the most current version:

Like Win10 1507, Windows Vista is dead. Really. It won’t be missed. If you’re still running Vista, take the machine off the Internet (forever) or switch to Fedora or any other supported operating system:

If you need help, contact me.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

The typical computer should see roughly 1gb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, .NET, Windows Defender, Internet Explorer, Edge, WEPOS, and MSRT (~800mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Google Chrome OS 58.0.3029.89 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 25.0.0.171 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+) your best option is to disable it. It’s just not worth the risk.

Win: http://12pd.com/click?flashie
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:

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday. Lots of small security updates out today. The typical computer should see roughly 120mb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Apple released updates for Apple TV 7.2.1. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

Google released security updates for all supported versions of Android 4.4+. There will be a delay as most vendors integrate this patch into their build.

There’s a critical security update to the OpenSSL library that will gradually be incorporated into all software that relies on OpenSSL. You should also take the time to ensure that SSLv1 and SSLv2 are disabled on all your SSL-enabled software.

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. 🙁 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.

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

Adobe Flash Player 20.0.0.270 are security updates.
Win: http://12pd.com/click?flash

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.

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.
