  • MS-DEFCON 2: Non-security Office updates due today

    Which means it’s a good time to check and make sure you have Automatic Updates turned off.

    If you’ve been following along, you already have Automatic Updates turned off. If you aren’t sure about your Auto Update status, see my new article in Computerworld Woody on Windows.

    You need to patch sooner or later, to be sure. But you don’t need to install non-security patches right away.

    We’re at MS-DEFCON 2: Patch reliability is unclear. Unless you have an immediate, pressing need to install a specific patch, don’t do it.
