Updates 2017-03-14

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday. This month brings the Vault 7 data dump, which exposed the machinations of a state-sponsored hacking organization with access to functional exploits for over a thousand applications and every popular operating system for both desktop and mobile. It’s a big deal. Vendors are ramping up their responses to address these exposed vulnerabilities so we can expect to see several out-of-cycle updates in the near future.

Microsoft released their delayed Windows patches, as well as more than a dozen updates to address new issues in Windows, Edge, Internet Explorer, Office, Silverlight, Windows DVD Maker, Microsoft Graphics, Windows Media Player, Microsoft XML Core Services, Microsoft Uniscribe, SMB Server, Hyper-V, Internet Information Services, Active Directory Federation Services and MSRT (~1.3gb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Apple released updates for Logic Pro X 10.3.1, GarageBand 10.1.6 and Apple Remote Desktop 3.9 Client. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install the most current versions.

Google Chrome OS 56.0.2924.110 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 25.0.0.127 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.

Adobe AIR 25.0.0.134 is a security update.

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 2016-08-09

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday.

Windows 10 Anniversary Edition was released this week. Don’t install it. There are many reports of stability problems after an upgrade. Be patient, they’ll fix it.

The typical computer should see roughly 750mb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, Internet Explorer, Edge, and MSRT (~500mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

iOS 9.3.4 is a security update. Use Settings, General, Software Update to get the most current version.

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.

Driver Updates

If you’re using this hardware – these updates are for you.

AMD Crimson Edition 16.8.1 adds hardware support and fixes bugs. This is not a security update.
http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-Crimson-Edition-16-8-1-Release-Notes.aspx

AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.5.3 fixes several bugs, and improves performance. This is not a security update.

nVidia 368.95 is not a security update.
http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4202/~/geforce-hot-fix-driver-version-368.95

nVidia OpenGL drivers for Windows 369.00, and Linux 367.36.02 fixes several bugs and adds support for the beta OpenGL 2016 ARB specification. This is not a security update.
https://developer.nvidia.com/opengl-driver

AcuRite PC Connect for XP and Vista has been discontinued. This software will receive no more updates and has been removed from the AcuRite website. If you’re still using this software (which implies you’re using either XP or Vista) your safest move is to switch to another operating system where you can use a supported application.

Display Driver Uninstaller 16.1.0.1 improves identification and cleanup. This is not a security update.

Browser Updates

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

Google Chrome 52.0.2743.116 is the most recent in a series of 4 Chrome security updates released in the last couple weeks. Use Menu, Help, About to get the most current version.

Firefox 48.0 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to get the most current version. As of Firefox 49 – in about 5 weeks – Firefox will no longer support older versions of OS X (prior to Mavericks / 10.9). On older Windows machines, SSE2 CPU extensions are now required for Firefox 48+ which will leave some Windows XP and Vista machines unsupported. If you’re using an older/unsupported operating system, consider this your one-month warning. In about a month there will no longer be a secure browser available for you, so your machine can only safely be used offline.

Email Updates

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

OutlookAttachView 2.94 fixes a crash bug. This is not a security update.

WinSCP 5.9 is a security update.
http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

Dropbox 7.4.30 no longer provides a detailed changelog, so should be treated as a security update, or preferably, abandoned. Software that doesn’t provide changelogs uses the fancy magical ability called “ignorance” to convince you to upgrade, possibly to a hacked or hijacked version, with no hope of validation from the author. A company like Dropbox, valued at $8 BILLION, should be able to spare someone on their build team to compose something more detailed than “The desktop client is regularly updated with many improvements and fixes.”

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.

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 2015-06-09

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! The typical computer should see roughly 160mb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released 6 updates to address issues in Windows, Office and Internet Explorer (~80mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Microsoft also announced the release date for Windows 10, a free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8.x (as long as you install it within the first year). Windows 10 will be released on July 29th, and will be a direct upgrade path (you won’t lose files, data or most settings or applications). You may need to reinstall some software. You may have noticed the Windows 10 logo in your system tray. You can use this to enable a local cache of the Windows 10 installation on your computer, however it will download a MINIMUM of 3gb to do so. If important updates are released before the launch in July, this could be updated or re-cached several times. If you have a slow, unstable or bandwidth limited connection, I recommend you wait until after the second Tuesday in August to enable this update. That will ensure you download the absolute least data necessary.

Adobe AIR 18.0.0.144 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?air
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?airmac

Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.160 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.
