Updates 2020-01-14

Happy new year, Folks!

Today is Patch Tuesday for January 2020.

Windows 7 is now officially EOL

Windows 7 is officially end-of-life (EOL). If you’re still running it, shame on you, and if you are running a licensed version of Windows 7 or 8 you can still upgrade to Windows 10 and have a supported version of Windows for the foreseeable future. Don’t want to do it yourself? Call me!
https://saferpc.info/contact/
With any luck there won’t be a zeroday vulnerability in Windows 7 that’s actively exploited only days after it becomes EOL. Please don’t let your Win7 machines online.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program. The typical computer should see roughly 2 GB in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates for Windows, Internet Explorer, .NET, Servicing Stack, and MSRT (~1.5 GB). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Apple released updates for macOS Catalina 10.15.2.2 Combo Update, iCloud 10.9.1, iCloud 7.16, and iTunes 12.10.3. These are security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install the most current versions.

Google Chrome OS 79.0.3945.86 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 32.0.0.314 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.

The release of macOS Catalina (10.15) means that macOS Sierra (10.12) and older are no longer supported. If you can not install at least macOS High Sierra (10.13) on your Mac then you should immediately remove it from the Internet and use it offline only. It will no longer receive patches or updates and can now no longer be secured.

The now-current release of the Windows 10 (1909) is a pretty small update so will install quickly. Windows 10 pushes you to get the latest Windows 10 release every 6 months. If you don’t let it finish and you’re on a slow connection, this process kill your Internet performance forever. If you don’t have the bandwidth to download the bits, I’m happy to provide loaner USB drives to our local clients, or, if you prefer to have me mail it to you please contact me for information.

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 or use, reducing the attack surface.

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!

Today is the day that Microsoft officially ends all support for Windows XP. If your hardware is capable, consider upgrading to Windows 7. If not, get a new computer. In either case, make sure you get these last updates for XP that were released today. If nothing else, perhaps it’ll stem the impending tide of malware for a little while.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled updates.

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! Today is a pretty average Patch Tuesday – Microsoft, Apple, Adobe and Mozilla have a variety of updates, many of them security-related.

Updates 2013-04-09

Hi, Folks!

This is actually a pretty mild Patch Tuesday, all things considered, but the severity of the updates is above average. For example, while all the common security updates are here again (Flash, AIR, Shockwave, iOS, Windows, OS X, Firefox, Chrome and so on), I’m surprised to see that Picasa, Evernote, phpMyAdmin, Coldfusion and even EA’s Origin all include security updates as well. Don’t skip these updates — many of them enable drive-by downloads which are sure to be exploited in ads on the most popular sites soon (if not already).

Microsoft released 9 updates for Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, SharePoint, Groove, and Windows Defender. This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
