Updates 2017-11-14

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday. This month brings updates to almost every browser and mobile, and the normal stuff: Microsoft released their 2 tons of binaries, but were not to be outdone by Adobe, which released updates for almost everything.

The typical computer should see roughly 2gb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, Edge, Internet Explorer, Flash, Server, NET and MSRT (~1.5gb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

iOS 11.1.1 is a security update and resolves the “i[A]” bug. Use Settings, General, Software Update to install the most current version.

Adobe Flash Player 27.0.0.187 is a security update.

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

Fedora 27-1.6 is a security update. This major version also adds several features, improvements to settings, network, and configuration, updated LibreOffice and more.

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:
