Updates 2018-10-23

Hi, Folks!

It’s not Patch Tuesday, but updates for Adobe Reader, Java, Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Vivaldi, N++, and others have been released.

The typical computer should see approximately 500mb of updates. Let’s get started.

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 2017-12-12

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday and it’s a big one. Just in time for Christmas Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, and more have released tons of security updates to keep the IT guy you know and love busy all season long.

I’ve had a lot of calls recently from people whose computers seem unusually slow since late October. This is a side-effect of the Windows 10 upgrade cycle, which pushes out 6gb through Windows update to get you to the latest Windows 10 release every 6 months. If you don’t let it finish and you’re on a slow connection, it will 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 at The Farmory, or, if you prefer to have me mail it to you please contact me for information.

The typical computer should see roughly 2gb in updates today. Let’s get started.

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

Apple released updates for macOS High Sierra 10.13.2, macOS Security Update 2017-002 Sierra, macOS Security Update 2017-005 El Capitan, tvOS 11.2, watchOS 4.2, iOS 11.2, Safari 11.0.2 and iTunes 12.7.2. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install the most current versions. A reboot is required.

iOS 11.2 is a security update. Use Settings, General, Software Update to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

watchOS 4.2 is a security update. Use the Watch app on your iPhone to install the most current version.

Google Chrome OS 62.0.3202.97 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 28.0.0.126 is a security update.

Fedora 27-1.6 is a security update. This major version also adds several features, improvements to settings, network, and configuration, updated LibreOffice and more.

Updates 2016-01-12

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! The typical computer should see roughly 250mb in updates today. Let’s get started.

If you’re still running Windows 8 (not 8.1), you will no longer receive Windows updates. You MUST install 8.1 to continue to receive security updates for Windows.

Today is the last day for updates to “older” versions of Internet Explorer. Historically, this means that a critical security issue will be discovered and exploited as early as tomorrow. Upgrade Internet Explorer to the latest version supported by your operating system NOW. Yes, this means you’ll lose DQSD. ๐Ÿ™ Even if you’re not using Internet Explorer as your primary browser, many applications including Office, Windows Explorer and third party components will still utilize Internet Explorer “under the hood”. Thus, whether you want it or not, you MUST install the current version to ensure you continue to receive security updates that *do* impact you.

Windows 10 will be switched from an “optional” update to an “important” update for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 today, which means that it will attempt to automatically install whenever you install updates (and sometimes just for fun at 3am) 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. The delay and potential issues you may experience from neglecting to either update or block the update can have serious repercussions.

My recommendation is to make some time to install Windows 10 as soon as possible. Typically the installation will take between 2 and 6 hours, with no ability to do other things on your computer while it’s installing. During installation you will be prompted with several option pages to enable/disable options and features. Disable them all. Yes, every single one. Uncheck every box and slide every slider “off”. Immediately after installation disable Cortana’s web-integration functionality, then go to All Settings and review every single option. If you have problems with Windows 10, you can revert to your existing OS.

If you are running software that’s not compatible with Windows 10, or need to prevent the installation for some other reason (such as my wife’s patented “I don’t wanna”) then your best option is to use GWX Control Panel to block the icon and disable OS upgrades (the first two options).

Now back to our regular patch notes.

Microsoft released 18 updates to address vulnerabilities in Windows, Edge, Internet Explorer, MS Office, MSRT, Silverlight, Visual Basic, and Windows Live Essentials (~125mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, QuickTime and iTunes to address security vulnerabilities. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

Adobe AIR 20.0.0.233 is a security update.

Updates 2015-09-08

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! The typical computer should see roughly 250mb 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 Internet Explorer, Windows, Microsoft Office and .NET (~140mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for QuickTime and Pro Video Formats. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. 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.

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:
