Updates 2019-07-09

Hi, Folks!

Today is Patch Tuesday for July 2019 and it’s one of the smallest we’ve seen in a while.

The typical computer should see roughly 1.3 GB in updates today. Let’s get started.

Microsoft released updates for Windows, .NET, Edge, Internet Explorer, Flash, and MSRT (~2 GB). This includes security updates. A reboot is required.

Apple released updates for AirPort Base Station Firmware Update 7.8.1 (802.11n). This is a security update. Use Apple Software Update to install the most current versions.

Google Chrome OS 75.0.3770.102 is a security update. Use Menu, Help, About to install the most current version. A reboot is required.

Adobe Flash Player 32.0.0.223 is a security update.

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 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 3-6 GB 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 2018-12-11

Hi, Folks!

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.

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 2014-05-13

Hi, Folks!

It’s Patch Tuesday! Or should I say, it’s Heartbleed Fix Day!?

Over the last month, the world has made quite the news out of a popular open source security library, OpenSSL. SSL is the underlying framework for nearly all secure communication and encryption in the world, and OpenSSL is the library which powers over 2/3rds of this. This isn’t the first time that a security issue has been discovered in OpenSSL, and it surely won’t be the last. But this particular bug enables attackers to collect information from the memory of affected services and applications, effectively creating such a significant weakness that hundreds of vendors scrambled to patch the bug, while millions of accounts from thousands of sites and services were potentially compromised.

One of the worst aspects of a popular bug like this is that everyone and their mother has their own opinion of it’s ramifications, with some dismissing it entirely and others currently shaping a second (or third) layer of tinfoil. The truth is somewhere in between. This bug has dramatic significance to the security world. Cisco routers are affected (most with no fix in sight or anticipated), as are many ATM’s, many applications for every operating system platform, including email clients & servers, browsers, web servers, financial applications, routers, modems, middleware and dedicated security hardware. Some of these the individual vendors have said will never be updated. Many others require manual installation of the current OpenSSL libraries or recompiling.

As a rule, any application that touches the Internet or network should be treated as vulnerable until patched or verified to be secure. Over the course of the last month almost every affected vendor has released updates to address the vulnerability. Unfortunately, nothing short of a complete hardware and software audit can determine if you are vulnerable.

If you run a website or other web-accessible service, then before *and* after patching your software, hardware and devices, you should take the time to re-key your SSL certificates.

The important thing to understand about this vulnerability is that it first introduced over 2 years ago and only publicly disclosed last month. This means that all “secure” traffic over the entire last two years should be treated as suspect.

Change all your passwords. All of them. Really.

Re-key your SSL certificates.

Ensure that all your browsers and mobile devices are configured to check for certificate revocation.

Meanwhile, the first major exploit for now-defunct Windows XP was discovered in use the day after support for XP ended. In a move that surprised many in the security industry (myself included), Microsoft released an update to address this vulnerability to all current versions of Windows, and included a patch for XP, as well. This was a fantastic stop-gap for those still running XP, but is likely only an act of good faith, and will be the very last one you’ll see for XP.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled update series…

Microsoft released 10 updates for Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, .NET, Visual Studio and MSRT. This includes security updates (~95mb). A reboot is required. Approximately half of these patch vulnerabilities that are either actively being exploited or were publicly disclosed.

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

Java 7u55 is a security update. DO NOT INSTALL Java if you do not already have it installed! Remove it if you have any doubt whatsoever that you might need it. You can always install it again if you need it. If you do have it installed, make sure you update all versions that are installed, including both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions for your operating system, if both are installed.
