With all the hacks going on out on the net today, patching your machines is more critical than ever.
Microsoft is releasing 16 Patches, 9 of which Microsoft deems critical. Patches include Windows, Office, and .Net, and all attempt to address RCE attacks.
Oracle has also released a major patch for Java in the past few days which addresses a number of security vulnerabilities. Adobe has patches out recently for Flash, Apple is playing whack-a-mole with malware, and basically there is a lot of patching to do.
Don’t forget though, with all these patches, to test them before deploying them. It doesn’t happen very often, but some patches can break your software.
