Updates 2018-02-13

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday and while they’re large this month, there aren’t that many.

The typical computer should see roughly 1.8gb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, Internet Explorer, MS Office, .NET, and MSRT (~1.8gb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Google Chrome OS 64.0.3282.144 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 28.0.0.161 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.

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.

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.

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.

Updates 2017-05-09

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday.

This month brings some downright scary news in the security world.

Intel announced they made a “minor coding error” in their CPUs designed for Enterprise deployment, which allows unauthenticated third parties to control pretty much every aspect of their computers. Oops.

Microsoft released a critical out-of-band security update yesterday, the day before Patch Tuesday, due to the severity of the bug in the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine (a component used by Microsoft firewalls, Windows Defender, Microsoft Security Essentials and other Microsoft security products). If you’re running Windows 10 the update should be have been installed automatically for you during the definition update process. If running an older version of Windows, it’ll be installed for you today when you install the rest of Windows Updates. You are going to install updates today, right?

Have I Been Pwned announced that another billion (with a B) accounts have been released on the web. If nothing else, consider this a reminder that if you haven’t started using a password manager yet, you’re really only hurting yourself.

The Windows 10 Creators Update (aka 1703, aka TH4) has been out about a month now and is remarkably stable. This major upgrade takes a few hours to install but improves responsiveness and corrects the app reinstall bug that has plagued previous builds of Windows 10. Windows 10 version 1507 (aka 10240) is now End-of-Life, which means that it will no longer receive important security updates. If you’re still running this version of Windows you must upgrade to at least version 1511 (10586) to continue to receive security updates. Use the installer here to get the most current version:
https://12pd.com/click?win10upgrade

Like Win10 1507, Windows Vista is dead. Really. It won’t be missed. If you’re still running Vista, take the machine off the Internet (forever) or switch to Fedora or any other supported operating system:
https://getfedora.org/
If you need help, contact me.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

The typical computer should see roughly 1gb in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates to Windows, .NET, Windows Defender, Internet Explorer, Edge, WEPOS, and MSRT (~800mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Google Chrome OS 58.0.3029.89 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 25.0.0.171 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.
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 2017-04-11

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday. The typical computer should see roughly 2gb in updates today.

The Windows 10 Creators Update (aka 1703, aka TH4) is being released today. It’s a major upgrade that adds several maintenance features as well as a few new core apps, such as 3D support in Paint. I strongly advise you to wait to install this update until at least next Wednesday, after the lemmings have encouraged MS to patch whatever bugs have gone unseen until now.

Windows Vista dies next week. It won’t be missed. However, both users of Vista will need to either replace their computers or switch to a more secure operating system, such as Fedora. If you need help, contact me.

Let’s get started.

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

Apple released updates for macOS 10.12.4, OS X 10.11.7, iOS 10.3.1, iTunes 12.6, tvOS 10.2, watchOS 3.2, Safari 10.1, Pages 6.1, Numbers 4.1, Keynote 7.1, macOS Server 5.3, and iCloud for Windows 6.2. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install the most current versions.

iOS 10.3.1 is a security update. Use Settings, General, Software Update to install the most current version.

Google Chrome OS 57.0.2987.146 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 25.0.0.148 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.
