Updates 2017-11-01

Hi, Folks!

It’s not Patch Tuesday, but Apple, Microsoft, Google and more have released updates this week.

The typical computer should see approximately 2gb of updates. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released an out-of-cycle security update for Flash Player 27.0.0.183. Use Windows Update to install the most current versions.

Apple released updates for macOS High Sierra 10.13.1, Security Update 2017-001 Sierra, Security Update 2017-004 El Capitan, iOS 11.1, watchOS 4.1, tvOS 11.1, Safari 11.0.1, iCloud for Windows 7.1, iTunes 12.7.1 are security updates. Use the Apple App Store or Apple Software Update to install the most current versions.

iOS 11.1 is a security update. Use Settings, General, Software Update to install the most current version.

watchOS 4.1 is a security update. Use your updated iPhone to install the most current version through the Watch app.
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204641

tvOS 11.1 is a security update. Use Settings, General, Updates to install the most current version.

Google Chrome OS 62.0.3202.74 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 27.0.0.183 is a security update.

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 2017-07-25

Hi, Folks!

It’s not Patch Tuesday, but Apple, Microsoft, Google and more have released updates this week.

The best technology news of the century was released today. Perhaps the millennium. In about 3 years Adobe will finally discontinue support for Flash, effectively removing the largest bulls-eye from your computer. As an end-user, are you still using Flash — or do you only think you’re still using Flash?

The typical computer should see approximately 400mb of updates. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates for Windows and .NET. Use Windows Update to install the most current versions.

Apple released updates for macOS 10.12.6, OS X Security Update 2017-003, Safari 10.1.2, iCloud for Windows 6.2.2, iTunes 12.6.2, and Wi-Fi Update for Boot Camp 6.1. This includes security updates. Use the Apple App Store or Apple Software Update to install the most current versions.

Apple iOS 10.3.3, tvOS 10.2.2, and watchOS 3.2.2 are security updates. Use Settings, General, Updates to install the most current versions.

Google Chrome OS 59.0.3071.134 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

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.

Updates 2017-04-11

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday. The typical computer should see roughly 2gb in updates today.

The Windows 10 Creators Update (aka 1703, aka TH4) is being released today. It’s a major upgrade that adds several maintenance features as well as a few new core apps, such as 3D support in Paint. I strongly advise you to wait to install this update until at least next Wednesday, after the lemmings have encouraged MS to patch whatever bugs have gone unseen until now.

Windows Vista dies next week. It won’t be missed. However, both users of Vista will need to either replace their computers or switch to a more secure operating system, such as Fedora. If you need help, contact me.

Let’s get started.

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

Apple released updates for macOS 10.12.4, OS X 10.11.7, iOS 10.3.1, iTunes 12.6, tvOS 10.2, watchOS 3.2, Safari 10.1, Pages 6.1, Numbers 4.1, Keynote 7.1, macOS Server 5.3, and iCloud for Windows 6.2. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install the most current versions.

iOS 10.3.1 is a security update. Use Settings, General, Software Update to install the most current version.

Google Chrome OS 57.0.2987.146 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 25.0.0.148 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+) your best option is to disable it. It’s just not worth the risk.

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.

Updates 2016-12-13

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday.

The typical computer should see roughly 1.6gb in updates today. The new MS update engine will help if you’re using the peer-to-peer features on *local* networks, or it will kill your performance if it’s touching the ‘net. The new release cycle of 1gb blobs is great for mass distribution, but chews through bandwidth if you’re not peering it for other devices on your LAN. Adobe has released 10 separate security updates today – still not remotely close to Oracle Tuesday last month, but more people use Adobe products than Oracle’s. The other updates run the gamut: every browser and almost everything from Chrome OS to WordPress. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, Office, .NET, Edge, IE, Flash, Exchange, AAD, TZData, Uniscribe, SSPI and MSRT (~1.25gb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required. NOTE: For some devices a second update+reboot cycle will be necessary!

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

iOS 10.2 is a security update. Use Settings, General, Software Update to install the most current update.

Google Chrome OS 55.0.2883.87 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 24.0.0.186 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.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flash
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flashie
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?flashmac

Adobe AIR 24.0.0.180 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 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.
