Updates 2016-07-12

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday.

Windows 10 will only be available as a free upgrade for the next 2 weeks! If you plan to upgrade your computer, make some time and do it now. If you don’t want to do it yourself, call me, I can install it for you in my office in Twain Harte, or remotely over the internet (as long as your Internet connection is fast enough).

The typical computer should see roughly 500mb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, .NET, Internet Explorer, Edge, Flash, Office and MSRT (~250mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for Digital Camera RAW Compatibility and AirPort Base Station. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

AirPort Base Station Firmware Update 7.6.7 and 7.7.7 are security updates. Use the Airport Utility to install the current release.
http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/
Adobe Flash Player 22.0.0.209 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:

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday. The typical computer should see roughly 1gb in updates today (that’s a lot). Let’s get started. Among other things, this month we have the last Chrome update ever to be released for Vista, XP and OS X prior to 10.9, WordPress, Flash, Adobe Creative Cloud, MS Office, as well as vulnerabilities in network sharing, wireless mice, and more.

Google Chrome 49.0.2623.112 is the latest in a series of 4 incremental security updates from the last 2 weeks. Almost all of them are directly related to Flash and the EOL of Chrome on older devices.

If you’re still using one of these operating systems then you’re already unsupported for many other applications, so Chrome should really be the least of your concerns. Either buy another computer, upgrade your operating system to Windows 7/OS X 10.9 or above, or replace your operating system with a supported third party option, such as Ubuntu 14 LTS.

Updates 2015-11-10

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! The typical computer should see roughly 350mb in updates today spread across dozens of updates. Let’s get started.

Windows 10 is about as stable as it’s going to get. In the next few months, it will be switched from an “optional” update to an “important” update for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, which means that it will attempt to automatically install whenever you install updates, and will also download (~3gb!) whether or not you plan to install it. The privacy controls for some features are buried in places most people won’t look, and the defaults for some options are very insecure. My recommendation is to make some time to install it. Immediately after installation go to All Settings and review every single option. If you have problems with Windows 10, revert to your existing OS. If you need help blocking the upgrade, contact me.

Microsoft released a dozen updates to address 53 published vulnerabilities in Windows, Internet Explorer, Edge, Office, Hyper-V, Journal, NDIS, .NET, Skype, various security packages and MSRT (~135mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, OS X Server, Xcode, Mac EFI, iTunes, OS X El Capitan 10.11.1, Safari, watchOS and iOS 9.1. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

iOS 9.1 is a security update, and fixes quite a few other issues.

OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 improves stability. It doesn’t feel nearly as sloppy now.

Adobe AIR 19.0.0.241 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?air
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?airmac

Adobe Flash Player 19.0.0.245 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flash
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flashie
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?flashmac

Adobe is also now pushing Adobe Reader DC as the new baseline Reader version. It’s stable, but the look is very different from 11 and prior.

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 2015-10-13

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, Google and more have updates for us today. The typical computer should see roughly 300mb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Windows 10 is becoming more stable but my hold off recommendation still holds. There are still upgrade woes with various hardware that might create problems for you, and the privacy controls for some features are buried in places most people won’t look, and the defaults for some options are very insecure. Hold off at least another couple weeks — let other people experience the problems so you don’t have to.

Microsoft released a dozen updates to address issues in Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, and MSRT (~120mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, Safari, iOS, printer drivers and WatchOS. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

iOS 9.0.2 is a security update, and fixes cell data problems as well as a few other issues.

OS X El Capitan (~6gb) is released and available for download. It’s very much like Yosemite, and you’re unlikely to feel much of a difference. My recommendation is to hold off. Yes, it runs, but it feels “sloppy”. It’s a little sluggish and it takes longer to boot. I expect the next minor patch will iron out these issues, probably in late October.

Adobe AIR 19.0.0.213 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?air
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?airmac

Adobe Flash Player 19.0.0.207 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.

Of important note is that the “tap to talk” display bug on Android was resolved a few days ago, so if you install the current Google App update, you should no longer experience the overlay problem when the Tap to Talk widget rotates or your device sleeps.

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:
