  • 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...

  • It's Patch Tuesday! Quite often you'll read my posts about what needs to be updated and when, but this month I'd like to take the opportunity to remind you to remove stuff. If you're not using it, remove it. If you don't need it, remove it. If you aren't sure whether you need something, chances are good you don't, so remove it. You can almost always reinstall whatever you remove, so if you're not sure, ask your IT guy (or me) and *then* you can remove it. Continue reading

  • Hi, Folks! It's Patch Tuesday. The typical computer should see roughly 1.5gb in updates today. It's another big one. This month marks the beginning of a new Microsoft update policy of packaging updates in group rollups instead of individually for different applications, even for older supported operating systems like Windows 7 and 8.1. Let's get started. Continue reading

  • Hi, Folks! It’s Patch Tuesday. The typical computer should see roughly 1.6gb in updates today. The new MS update engine will help if you’re using the peer-to-peer features on *local* networks, or it will kill your performance if it’s touching the ‘net. The new release cycle of 1gb blobs is great for mass distribution, but chews through bandwidth if you’re not peering it for other devices on your LAN. Adobe has released 10 separate security updates today – still not remotely close to Oracle Tuesday last month, but more people use Adobe products than Oracle’s. The other updates run the gamut: every browser and almost everything from Chrome OS to WordPress. Let’s get started. Continue reading
