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.

Adobe AIR 18.0.0.144 is a security update.

Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.160 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flash
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flashie
Mac: https://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 2014-11-11

Hi, Folks!

Happy Veteran’s Day. Thank you to those who served.

It’s Patch Tuesday! Not a whole lot to do today. Mostly the usual suspects, with a few less popular apps as well. Let’s get started.
Microsoft released 16 updates for Windows, Internet Explorer, MS Office, .NET, SharePoint, IIS, Active Directory, EMET, and MSRT. This includes security updates (~80mb). A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for iOS, iCloud, QuickTime, iTunes, AppleTV, printer drivers, and OS X. Apple also released the latest version of OS X, 10.10 “Yosemite”. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

iOS 8.1 is the first “really” stable version of iOS 8. If you’re running a device that supports it, now is the time to upgrade. Use iTunes to install the most current version in order to avoid the space warnings on your device.

Be aware that when you update OS X to Yosemite, you may need to reinstall SaferPC Remote Support to allow me to continue to assist you. Contact me for details.

Adobe Flash Player 15.0.0.223 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flash
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flashie
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?flashmac

Adobe AIR 15.0.0.356 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?air
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?airmac
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 2014-10-14

Hi, Folks!

It’s BASH Tuesday! October is here. September was awful. There were 3.5 update cycles in September and a large number of vulnerabilities released for a wide array of software and hardware. The most significant of these was Shellshock, a vulnerability discovered in late September which directly impacts almost every Linux-powered device and operating system for over 20 years. The scope of this particular vulnerability made Heartbleed look minor. However, as significant as it is, it doesn’t directly affect most consumers. The most significant issue for most consumers is going to be those devices they don’t think of as having an operating system: stuff like security cameras, automatic lights and even cars. Many of these run a form of Linux that if networking is enabled opens them up to the potential for exploitation. When in doubt call the vendor. Or me. 😉

Today brings a relatively light load of updates. The typical computer will require less than 300mb in updates today.

I always remind everyone to do their backups, but this month it’s really important. Yesterday HP disclosed that they “accidentally” allowed one of their certificates to be used to “sign” malware, enabling the malware to bypass various security precautions on many computers. They plan to revoke this certificate and re-key their software next month, but this will invalidate the recovery partition on many HP and Compaq computers. If something happens to an affected computer that requires reinstalling the operating system, it could be prevented unless media (which you have to make yourself) is used. Back your content up now, and if you haven’t done so yet, create your “recovery media” as soon as possible.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Microsoft released updates for Windows, Internet Explorer, MS Office, Developer tools, and .Net. This includes security updates (80-185mb). A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for iOS, printer drivers and BASH. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required. Apple plans to release OS X Yosemite (10.10) this Friday. Yosemite will support all hardware supported by Mavericks, so if you are running Mavericks, you can update to Yosemite for free through Apple Software Update this weekend.

iOS 8.0.2 is the first mostly-stable release of iOS. You can install it now. Use iTunes or Settings, General, About to install this update. Back it up first!

Adobe Flash Player 15.0.0.189 is a security update.

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