October Patch Tuesday is coming!
That's right, it's that time of the month. For Patch Tuesday that is. Microsoft's monthly ritual of updating their software to fix bugs and close security holes. As part of Security Mike's Update Service, you'll get an analysis of each month's updates and also a few screen shots to help you ensure the patches were installed correctly.
Since Security Mike's Portal doesn't launch until October 15, I'll post this month's analysis on the Blog and then on Tuesday post the screen shots to confirm your successful update.
This month Microsoft is issuing 7 updates - 4 of them critical. But regardless of how Microsoft grades their updates, you need to get in the habit of making sure the patches are applied as soon as possible.
So look for a more detailed analysis on Tuesday.
