Updates 2012-05-08

Hey folks!

Microsoft released 16 updates today for Windows, Office, .NET, Silverlight, MSRT and an updated Certificate Revokation List (CRL). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
Note that among those “offers” included in the current cycle are Microsoft Security Essentials and the Bing Desktop application. If you already have a security or antivirus software you do not need (and probably should not install) Microsoft Security Essentials. You can ‘hide’ the update to prevent it from being offered again. Likewise, if you do not wish to install the Bing desktop toolbar and search service, you can ‘hide’ this option so it will not be offered again.

Apple has released several updates this month for printer drivers, an iOS security update and a removal tool for the Flashback trojan. This includes security updates. Use the Apple Updater to get the most current versions of this software, and to check for and remove the Flashback trojan from your Mac.

Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.235 is a security update. This version corrects a security vulnerability that’s being actively exploited on multiple platforms (Mac, Win, Linux and Android). If you’re on Windows, ensure that you have Flash Player set to perform automatic updates (available since last month within the control panel), otherwise be sure to install this update ASAP. This is a security update.

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.

Office Updates

One or more of these are likely to be of interest to most people.

OpenOffice 3.4.0 is the first release since Oracle passed the license to the Apache Foundation, and shows significant progress, adding MailMerge, significantly improving CSV support, correcting and improving upon the library of functions and coding abilities, adding UTF-32 support to Math symbol catalog, improved defaults, performance, compatibility and style elements. SVG support has been added, as well as a significant range of graphics and line-mode capabilities. Last but not least, the name has been changed from “OpenOffice.org” to “Apache OpenOffice” or simply “OpenOffice”, which will surely frustrate those who’ve spent the last few years publicly arguing the finer points of trademark law on those four silly characters (“.org”).
http://www.openoffice.org/download/

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

Adobe Illustrator CS6 is a security update to CS5.5. This is a paid version upgrade. Earlier versions will NOT be updated to address this vulnerability, so if you opt not to ugprade, be careful with opening files from untrusted sources.
http://www.adobe.com/products/illustrator.html

Adobe Flash Professional CS6 is a security update to CS5.5. This is a paid version upgrade. Earlier versions will NOT be updated to address this vulnerability, so if you opt not to ugprade, be careful with opening files from untrusted sources.
http://www.adobe.com/products/flash.html

Let me take a moment here and bring to light that Adobe, who learned of these security vulnerabilities (and exploit methods) over 4 months ago, delayed releasing an update for all previous ($$$) versions of their software, opting instead to push their new subscription-ware model. Not surprisingly, they released these security notices with no fanfare and little more than a “too bad for our existing customers” the day after they “launched” CS6. Shame on you, Adobe. For everyone else, if you’re looking for a powerful graphic suite without the price tag, check out Paint.net, Gimp, and Scribus. Even more options are listed at Alternative.to.

Updates 2010-12-14

Hey folks!

Microsoft released 14 updates today through Windows Update (30-40mb), covering issues in Office, Windows and Internet Explorer. This includes multiple security fixes. Use Windows Update to obtain these updates as soon as possible. A reboot is required.
  http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro EFI firmware updates correct reported display problems. This is not a security update. Use the Apple Updater to get these updates.

Apple Boot Camp 3.2 adds support for newer hardware and corrects multiple critical bugs. This is not a security update, but this should be treated as an urgent update. Use the Apple Updater to get these updates.

iOS 4.2.1 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod corrects more than a hundred security and stability issues with previous versions, including several that enable a remote attacker to exploit your device without action on your part (for example, by simply calling you). This is a security update. Use iTunes 10.1 to download and install this update (~400mb). Afraid you’ll lose something? Backup first:
  http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1414

QuickTime 7.6.9 is a security update. If you have iTunes or QuickTime installed, install this update with the Apple Updater, or by downloading the newest version from:
  http://apple.com/quicktime/download/

Adobe Reader 10.0 (branded as “Reader X”) and 9.4.1 are security updates, correcting multiple public security issues. This is a security update. Since 10.0 was just released, I recommend against being the Adobe Guinea Pig. Give it a couple weeks or a month for the first security and stability update to 10.0 to be released, then install it. Meanwhile, please install the 9.4.1 update immediately by using Help, Check for Updates in Adobe Reader. If upgrading to 10.0, get it from the link below:

Java 6u23 improves timezone support, stability and performance. This is not a security update, but if you have Java installed, you should always treat Java updates as critical.

Looking for an upgrade?

This is not your typical Christmas season. 99% of the sales I’ve seen have been little more than something to lure you in the door for hardware that isn’t actually available, or isn’t something you should purchase. That said, there’s still time to replace your aging hardware online if you’re looking for:

Laptops?

Desktops?

Monitors?

My advice: Avoid Toshiba and Dell, make sure it’s at least a dual-core machine, and unless you’re a hardcore gamer or developer, you shouldn’t need to spend more than $600 for a machine that will last you 5+ years. Since Windows 7 has now been available for about a year, and has proven itself stable and reliable, if you were one of many putting off your upgrade due to fears of Vista, it’s all clear now. 🙂

7-Zip 9.20! I’ll start this one with “Yay!” 7-Zip 9.20 is finally available, incorporating several bugfixes as well as more than a dozen new formats including direct filesystem streams, RPM, VHD, SWF, FLV, APM, huge TAR (8gb+), new SFX tool and the addition of diff tool integration. This is a major update, following nearly two years of testing, and you should not only upgrade to this version if you’re using a previous version of 7-Zip, but you should switch to 7-Zip if you’re not. Seriously. It’s that good.

After a few minutes of downloading, the updater will start. You’ll be prompted to click “Update”, approve installation and finally “close” the installer when done. Alternatively, you can download the full installer from:
