Updates 2017-02-14

Hi, Folks!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s Patch Tuesday – and a weird one. Both Adobe and Microsoft have self-imposed delays on their staged updates this month. Instead of installing those updates anyway, I strongly suggest you wait for the “all clear” — there’s no telling just how serious the problems are until they are resolved. Installing them anyway could leave your device even less secure or potentially unbootable.

Everything else should be safe, though, so let’s get started. The typical computer should see roughly 800mb in updates today.

Apple released updates for iOS 10.2.1, macOS Update 10.12.3, Safari 10.0.3, GarageBand 10.1.6, watchOS 3.1.3, iTunes 12.5.5, iCloud for Windows 6.1.1, tvOS 10.1.1, Logic Pro X 10.3 and Security Update 2016-003 Supplemental. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install the most current versions.

Google Chrome OS 56.0.2924.87 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 24.0.0.221 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.

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 2015-08-18

Hi, Folks!

It’s not Patch Tuesday, but Microsoft, Apple, Oracle, WordPress and more have released updates this week. The typical computer should approximately 100mb of updates. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released out-of-cycle security updates to address issues in Internet Explorer and Windows. This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, Safari, iOS, iTunes, Boot Camp and Digital Camera RAW compatibility. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

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.

RoboForm 7.9.15 improves performance and extension reinstallation, and fixes several bugs. This is not a security update. Under Windows 10 DO NOT reduce the IE/Edge browser security by disabling security features to make RoboForm work. Install without IE/Edge support and use another browser (like Chrome) and wait patiently for the next release of RoboForm to address the security risk the right way. If you install the RoboForm update and enable the option to disable Edge security, it will not be automatically re-enabled when you install an update that doesn’t require weak IE security, resulting in a permanent unnecessary security risk.

Updates 2015-06-09

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! The typical computer should see roughly 160mb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released 6 updates to address issues in Windows, Office and Internet Explorer (~80mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Microsoft also announced the release date for Windows 10, a free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8.x (as long as you install it within the first year). Windows 10 will be released on July 29th, and will be a direct upgrade path (you won’t lose files, data or most settings or applications). You may need to reinstall some software. You may have noticed the Windows 10 logo in your system tray. You can use this to enable a local cache of the Windows 10 installation on your computer, however it will download a MINIMUM of 3gb to do so. If important updates are released before the launch in July, this could be updated or re-cached several times. If you have a slow, unstable or bandwidth limited connection, I recommend you wait until after the second Tuesday in August to enable this update. That will ensure you download the absolute least data necessary.

Updates 2015-04-14

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! Relatively light load today. The typical computer should see roughly 150mb in updates, though Mac and iOS devices can expect roughly 1.3gb in updates. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released 12 updates to address issues in Windows, Internet Explorer, .NET, Microsoft Office, and MSRT (~88mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, iOS, iTunes, Safari, Xcode, Apple TV, and Pro Video Formats. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

OS X 10.10.3 Security Update 2015-004 corrects 79 security issues in 27 components. Some of the vulnerabilities have been known since 2013, and exploitation is already underway. Be aware that no prior version of OS X will ever be patched for some of the vulnerabilities, so like it or not, it’s time to switch to Yosemite!

iOS 8.3 corrects over 50 security issues in 26 different components from Backup to Safari. This update is known to cause problems with Touch ID in the App Store, but the inconvenience is worth the security improvements.

Adobe AIR 17.0.0.144 is a security update.
Win: http://12pd.com/click?air
Mac: http://12pd.com/click?airmac

Adobe Flash Player 17.0.0.169 is a security update.
Win: http://12pd.com/click?flash
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:
