Updates 2016-04-12

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.

Microsoft released updates to address vulnerabilities in Windows, Edge, .NET, Internet Explorer, Wireless Mouse Input Filtering and MS Office (~1gb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, iOS 9.3.1, and iBooks Author. These are security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

Adobe AIR 21.0.0.198 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?air
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?airmac

Adobe Flash Player 21.0.0.213 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.

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:

Browser Updates

One or more of these are likely to be of interest to everyone.

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. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. This is also the LAST VERSION of Chrome that will be supported on XP, Vista, and OS X prior to 10.9. 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 2015-04-14

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! Relatively light load today. The typical computer should see roughly 150mb in updates, though Mac and iOS devices can expect roughly 1.3gb in updates. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released 12 updates to address issues in Windows, Internet Explorer, .NET, Microsoft Office, and MSRT (~88mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

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

OS X 10.10.3 Security Update 2015-004 corrects 79 security issues in 27 components. Some of the vulnerabilities have been known since 2013, and exploitation is already underway. Be aware that no prior version of OS X will ever be patched for some of the vulnerabilities, so like it or not, it’s time to switch to Yosemite!

iOS 8.3 corrects over 50 security issues in 26 different components from Backup to Safari. This update is known to cause problems with Touch ID in the App Store, but the inconvenience is worth the security improvements.

Microsoft released 15 updates to address vulnerabilities in Windows, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office and MSRT. This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for iOS (8.2), OS X, iTunes, AppleTV, printer drivers and X-Code. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

Adobe AIR 16.0.0.273 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:

Happy Veteran’s Day. Thank you to those who served.

It’s Patch Tuesday! Not a whole lot to do today. Mostly the usual suspects, with a few less popular apps as well. Let’s get started.

iOS 8.1 is the first “really” stable version of iOS 8. If you’re running a device that supports it, now is the time to upgrade. Use iTunes to install the most current version in order to avoid the space warnings on your device.

Be aware that when you update OS X to Yosemite, you may need to reinstall SaferPC Remote Support to allow me to continue to assist you. Contact me for details.

Updates 2013-07-09

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! I’m happy to report that many vendors are now treating Patch Tuesday as sacrosanct, releasing their updates to coincide with the release cycles of the major players like Microsoft, Apple and Adobe. This is good news for everyone. There’s nothing worse than installing a bunch of security updates across a bunch of devices on Patch Tuesday only to have to do it all again a couple days later. Of course, it also means that this month we’ve got over a hundred updates.

Microsoft released 19 updates for Windows, Internet Explorer, DirectShow, Windows Media Format Runtime, Silverlight, Microsoft Office, .NET Framework, MSRT, and Windows Defender. This includes security updates. A reboot is required. IMPORTANT: You will likely need to install updates, reboot, and then return to Windows Update to install another remaining update (don’t forget to ‘check’)!
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, RAW Compatibility and Java. This includes security updates. A reboot is required. Use the Apple Software Updater to get the most current versions.

Adobe Flash Player 11.8.800.94 is a security update. For Windows:

For OS X:

Adobe Shockwave 12.0.3.133 is a security update. It is my recommendation to remove Shockwave unless you absolutely require it. If, and only if, you require it, update below. If you do not require it, remove it.
https://12pd.com/click?shockwave

Java 7u25 is a security update. If you do not absolutely require it, remove it!
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Don’t forget to check your mobile devices, too! Many of these updates may also apply to your tablet, phone or kindle – so check your device-appropriate App Store and install updates.

Trolling for the Public Good

I spent almost an hour on the 4th of July trolling a scammer from “Microsoft Tech Support” who claimed my computer told him I was infected. Read more about this experience here:
https://saferpc.info/2013/07/microsoft_technical_support_scam/
Bottom line: Just because someone with an accent calls you doesn’t mean you should give them access to your computer!

Opera 15.00 is a major version upgrade which, among other things, replaces the rendering engine with the Chromium engine (the same as used in Google Chrome).
