  • A “critical” Win7/Server 2008 patch coming in February/March really IS critical

    Posted on November 20th, 2018 at 06:59 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Microsoft is changing to the SHA-2 encryption method for all of its updates. The change will happen in April. In order to get new updates starting in April, your Win7 or Server 2008 (or older version of WSUS) has to be patched.

    Details in Computerworld Woody on Windows.
