Updates 2019-04-09

Hi, Folks!

Today is Patch Tuesday for April 2019. Windows 10 v1903 is just around the corner. Edge users will start getting it over the next few days, with the majority of Home users getting it near the end of the month. You can delay it by installing v1809 if you haven’t done so yet, which will grant you a 3 month reprieve. Today is also the last day of updates released for any Windows 10 version prior to v1803. If you’re running v1507-v1709 (and not running a long-term servicing build) then you should upgrade to v1809 ASAP.

The typical computer should see roughly 1.2 GB in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates for Windows, .NET, Edge, Internet Explorer, Flash, POSReady, and MSRT (~850 MB). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Apple released updates for macOS Mojave 10.14.4, Security Update 2019-002 High Sierra, Security Update 2019-002 Sierra, iOS 12.2, tvOS 12.2, Safari 12.1, iTunes 12.9.4, iCloud for Windows 7.11, Xcode 10.2, and watchOS 5.2. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install the most current versions.

iOS 12.2 is a security update. Use Settings, General, Software Update to install the most current update.

watchOS 5.2 is a security update. Use the Watch app on your iPhone to install the most current version.

tvOS 12.2 is a security update. Use System, Software Update to install the most current version.

Adobe AIR 32.0.0.116 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?air
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?airmac

Adobe Flash Player 32.0.0.171 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flash
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flashie
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?flashmac

Google Chrome OS 73.0.3683.88 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.

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.

The now-current release of the Windows 10 (1903) will cause your computer to feel unusually slow until it is installed. This is a side-effect of the Windows 10 upgrade cycle, which pushes out 3-6gb 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, or, if you prefer to have me mail it to you please contact me for information.

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 or use, reducing the attack surface.

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 2018-06-12

Hi, Folks!

If you’re running Windows 10 Home you’ve either already received v1803, or it’s been eating away at your bandwidth for the last month. It’s stable enough now to install, but you might still have issues afterwards. Need help? Call me.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program. Today is Patch Tuesday and it’s a big one.

The typical computer should see roughly 2.5gb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, Edge, Internet Explorer, Flash, and MSRT (~1.2gb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Apple released macOS 10.13.5, macOS Security Update 2018-003, Safari 11.1.1, iOS 11.4, watchOS 4.3.1, tvOS 11.4, iTunes 12.7.5 for Windows, and iCloud for Windows 7.5. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

Updates 2018-04-10

Hi, Folks!

It’s April 10th and the next build of Windows 10, v1803 aka “Redstone 4,” is supposed to be released today. This is a 6gb download that introduces a few new features and controls, but is not yet widely tested. Don’t be the guinea pig. For at least the next month, when you’re prompted that “the new version of Windows is ready,” just say no! I’ll report here when I believe it is safe for most users.

It’s Patch Tuesday and it’s a big one.

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

Microsoft released updates to Windows, MS Office, Edge, Internet Explorer, Flash, and MSRT (~1.2gb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Apple released updates for macOS High Sierra 10.13.4, Security Update 2018-002 Sierra, Security Update 2018-002 El Capitan, iTunes 12.7.4 for Windows, iCloud for Windows 7.4, and Xcode 9.3. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

iOS 11.3 is a security update. Use Settings, General, Software Update to install the most current update.

watchOS 4.3 is a security update. Use the Watch app on your iPhone to install the most current version.

tvOS 11.3 is a security update. Use System, Software Update to install the most current version.

Google Chrome OS 65.0.3325.209 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 29.0.0.140 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.

The release of the next build of Windows 10 (1803) will cause your computer to feel unusually slow until it is installed. 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.

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!

Microsoft released updates to Windows, Internet Explorer, .NET, Flash, POSReady, and MSRT (~850mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Apple released updates for macOS Sierra for iMacs. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 26.0.0.126 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.
