Happy Patch Day! In


Happy Patch Day!

In addition to being Shrove Tuesday, tomorrow is the second Tuesday of the month which means it is the day that Microsoft releases new security fixes and patches for its software.

For those running Windows here’s the article:

It’s important to get those patches in a timely manner. Once Microsoft goes public with the flaw by releasing the patch, virus and worm author usually develop immediate attacks on people who are tardy with installing the new patches. The majority of successful attacks on computer systems use vulnerabilities which Microsoft has already patched, but which have not been applied by the system’s users.

Happy Shrove Tuesday!
