Updates 2016-11-08

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday.

The typical computer should see roughly 2.2gb in updates today. It’s another big one. The Microsoft-specific updates should be easier, but no smaller, since they’re now packaging almost all updates in only two files for each supported version of Windows. Apple has updated all supported versions of their operating systems between 2 and 5 times this last month, and they seem to be stable now – so it’s probably safe to upgrade your Apple hardware. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, Internet Explorer, Edge, drivers, .NET, Active Directory, VHD, RDP, and MSRT (~1.3gb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

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

Google Chrome OS 54.0.2840.93 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version.

Oracle: everything. Oracle released security updates for 76 product lines covering over 230 applications. It’s easier to say, patch all Oracle software now than to try to even identify what the all are.

Adobe Flash Player 23.0.0.207 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+) disable it. It’s just not worth the risk.

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 2013-01-08

Hi, Folks!

Microsoft released 8 updates this month to address security issues in Windows, Office, Windows Server, Expression, SharePoint and .NET. Total size is between 40mb and 100mb, depending on your installed components. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Microsoft also released a FixIt to address a security issue in Internet Explorer for Windows XP (it DOES NOT affect other versions). This update is not included in Windows Update, so if you’re using XP, you need to install it from the FixIt page here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2794220
Click the “FixIt” button under the (tiny) words “Enable MSHTML shim workaround” and follow the prompts.

Apple released updates to iOS, iCloud, iMac, iPhoto and Aperture. These are not security updates. Use the Apple Updater to get the most current versions.

Adobe Reader 11.0.1 and 10.1.5 are security updates. Now that the first patch for 11 has been released, it should be safe to upgrade to that. Don’t forget to fix the security settings after installation, as all major updates erase the preferences. Sigh. Use Help, Check for Updates to get the most current version or download the major update here:
http://get.adobe.com/reader

Java 7u10 is a security update. If you do not require Java, please uninstall it instead.
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Adobe AIR 3.5.0.1060 is a security update.
https://12pd.com/click?air

Adobe Flash Player 11.5.502.146 is a security update.

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 anytime, 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:
