  • MS-DEFCON 2: Make sure you have automatic updates turned off

    Posted on March 14th, 2012 at 07:26 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Microsoft released a bumper crop of Black Tuesday patches.

    At this point, if you don’t use Remote Desktop, there’s nothing particularly interesting. If you have a Windows Server and you use Remote Desktop, you should look at MS12-020, per this SANS advisory.

    Hang in there. Let’s see how this bunch shakes out.

    I’m moving us up to MS-DEFCON 2: Patch reliability is unclear. Unless you have an immediate, pressing need to install a specific patch, don’t do it.
