Updates 2017-11-14

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday. This month brings updates to almost every browser and mobile, and the normal stuff: Microsoft released their 2 tons of binaries, but were not to be outdone by Adobe, which released updates for almost everything.

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

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

iOS 11.1.1 is a security update and resolves the “i[A]” bug. Use Settings, General, Software Update to install the most current version.

Adobe Flash Player 27.0.0.187 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flash
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flashie
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?flashmac

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.
https://getfedora.org/en/workstation/download/

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 2017-08-08

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday. The typical computer should see roughly 1.2gb in updates today.

In security news, NIST (United States National Institute for Standards and Technology), the US government agency responsible for developing most US scientific and technological standards, is recommending new password implementation policies that, hopefully, most of the world will adopt in short order. Sophos has a great review of what’s happening here and this quote adequately summarizes the ridiculousness of the current situation:

No composition rules. What this means is, no more rules that force you to use particular characters or combinations, like those daunting conditions on some password reset pages that say, “Your password must contain one lowercase letter, one uppercase letter, one number, four symbols but not &%#@_, and the surname of at least one astronaut.”

Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, Edge, Internet Explorer, Flash, and MSRT (~1gb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Apple released an update for Pages EndNote Plug-in 3.1. This is a security update. Use Apple Software Update to install this update. A reboot is required.

ChromeOS 60.0.3112.80 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version.

Adobe Flash Player 26.0.0.151 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.

Updates 2016-03-23

Hi, Folks!

It’s not Patch Tuesday, but Microsoft, Apple, Mozilla, Google, Adobe and more released updates today. The typical computer should require approximately 250mb of updates. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released out-of-cycle security updates to address issues in Windows Update (~10mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for Apple Software Update, Apple Remote Desktop, iOS 9.3, iTunes 12.3.3, OS X, Safari, tvOS, watchOS and Xcode. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update (no joke) to install these updates.

Adobe AIR 21.0.0.176 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?air
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?airmac

Adobe Flash Player 21.0.0.197 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:

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.

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.
