Updates 2016-05-10

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday.

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

Microsoft released 16 updates to address vulnerabilities in Windows, Office, Edge, .NET, Internet Explorer, Remote Desktop, and MSRT (~700mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Apple released updates for Xcode 7.3.1 and Apple Remote Desktop. These are security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 21.0.0.226 for Mac is a security update.
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?flashmac
Adobe will be releasing Flash updates again on Thursday, and may release AIR updates then as well.

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 2015-10-13

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, Google and more have updates for us today. The typical computer should see roughly 300mb 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 Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, and MSRT (~120mb). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, Safari, iOS, printer drivers and WatchOS. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

iOS 9.0.2 is a security update, and fixes cell data problems as well as a few other issues.

OS X El Capitan (~6gb) is released and available for download. It’s very much like Yosemite, and you’re unlikely to feel much of a difference. My recommendation is to hold off. Yes, it runs, but it feels “sloppy”. It’s a little sluggish and it takes longer to boot. I expect the next minor patch will iron out these issues, probably in late October.

Adobe AIR 19.0.0.213 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?air
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?airmac

Adobe Flash Player 19.0.0.207 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.

Of important note is that the “tap to talk” display bug on Android was resolved a few days ago, so if you install the current Google App update, you should no longer experience the overlay problem when the Tap to Talk widget rotates or your device sleeps.

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.

Updates 2015-07-21

Hi, Folks!

It’s not Patch Tuesday, but Microsoft, Apple and Google released out-of-cycle updates today. The typical computer should require less than 50mb of updates. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released an out-of-cycle security update for Windows today, as well as a new baseline for Microsoft Security Essentials. This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released an update to Mac mini EFI. This is not a security update. Use Apple 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.

Next week Microsoft will release Windows 10, which they’ve called “the last Windows operating system”. Free updates will be available to download for any computer running legal consumer versions of Windows 7 or 8.1. This will be a very extensive update (over 3gb) and will take hours to process. Afterwards consumer versions will have Microsoft updates forced upon them, though they can select the timing of the updates. While other changes will be imposed as well, it’s really the best step forward for both security and stability. My recommendation is to wait until after Patch Tuesday of August before installing the update. While there are thousands of people testing Windows 10 already, it can not be tested with all hardware, so you would be safest to wait until other guinea pigs subject themselves to whatever problems may arise before allowing yourself to suffer potential data loss and frustration.

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.

Updates 2014-03-11

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday!

Once again – if you’re still running Windows XP, I strongly encourage you to upgrade to Windows 7 as soon as possible. Time is running out! There’s now less than 27 days and 20 hours remaining until Microsoft terminates all support for Windows XP.
https://12pd.com/amazon?windows+7+oem
The only good news on this front is that Microsoft has announced they’ll support Microsoft Security Essentials and Microsoft Defender *for* Windows XP through July 14, 2015. This does not alleviate the simple fact that vendors don’t even patch all the holes they know about in a timely fashion (see the iOS update further down). There is absolutely no reason to believe a secure computing environment on Windows XP will ever be possible after April 8th.

Here’s a list of known (some are unpatched) holes in XP Microsoft will never address:
http://www.cvedetails.com/product/739/Microsoft-Windows-Xp.html?vendor_id=26

So far, there are 961 publicly known vulnerabilities in Windows XP — over 80 discovered only within the last year at an upward-trending average of approximately 82/year. Of those, more than half allowed an unauthenticated third party to execute code on the computer, often without anything to do with the browser. Ultimately this means that being “safe” online with an unpatched or unpatchable XP computer is impossible. The potential for drive-by exploits, service-related attacks, firewall-bypasses and so on exists regardless of whether you’ve turned off or removed java, javascript & flash. The only safe XP computer as of April 8th will be completely disconnected from the Internet.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled updates.

Microsoft released 5 updates for Windows, Internet Explorer, Silverlight, root certificates and Exchange. If running XP you’ll also receive an update that warns you of the upcoming XPtinction. This includes security updates. A reboot is required.
http://update.microsoft.com/

Apple released updates for OS X, iOS, iTunes, QuickTime, Mac PRO SMC, Boot Camp, Safari, AppleTV, and Pages. This includes security updates. Use Apple Software Update to install these updates. A reboot is required.

iOS 7.1 + 6.1.6 are security updates — patching vulnerabilities Apple has known about for nearly two years. While 7.1 addresses over 40 vulnerabilities, iOS 6.x did not receive a complementary update for this series. If you have an iPhone 3GS or earlier, it now has unpatched security holes that will not be addressed in any future update. Use iTunes to install this update to your Apple device.

Adobe Flash Player 12.0.0.77 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flash
Win: https://12pd.com/click?flashie
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?flashmac

Adobe AIR 4.0.0.1628 is a security update.
Win: https://12pd.com/click?air
Mac: https://12pd.com/click?airmac

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.
