  • Horowitz: Defending against Win10 bug fixes

    Posted on October 21st, 2018 at 09:19 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    One of my favorite security writers, Michael Horowitz, has a new blog post, Defending against Windows 10 bug fixes.

    Those of you who follow along on this site, or read my Computerworld articles (or can speculate as to the origin of the “MS-DEFCON” terminology) know how important it is to protect your Windows 10 (and, increasingly, 7) machine from Microsoft’s pushed problems.

    Software always needs bug fixes. Still, it is widely understood that Windows Update, which installs bug fixes for Windows, is itself dangerous. Too many bug fixes create new problems. It has gotten so bad that every techie paying attention knows to wait before installing the latest “updates.” Let someone else experience the inevitable bugs that new fixes create.

    Good stuff.
