Updates 2015-03-10

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! Moderate load today. The typical computer should see roughly 300mb in updates. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released 15 updates to address vulnerabilities in Windows, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office and MSRT. This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for iOS (8.2), OS X, iTunes, AppleTV, printer drivers and X-Code. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

Adobe AIR 16.0.0.273 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 2014-02-11

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday!

Once again – if you’re still running Windows XP, I strongly encourage you to upgrade to Windows 7 as soon as possible. Time is running out! There’s only 1 month, 24 days, 21 hours and 45 minutes remaining until Microsoft terminates all support for Windows XP.ย The only news on this front is that Microsoft has announced they’ll support Microsoft Security Essentials and Microsoft Defender on Windows XP through July 14, 2015.

Microsoft released a dozen updates for Windows, .NET, MSRT, Internet Explorer and Exchange. This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, iTunes, Pages, Pro Apps, and iCloud Control Panel. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

iOS 7.0.5 is a security update. Use iTunes to install this update to your Apple device.

Adobe Flash Player 12.0.0.44 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 or kindle – 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:
