• What should you do with the July patches?

    Good question from s:

    You moved to Defcon2 for August but we still don’t know what to do with the July patches. (Win 7) !!??

    Short answer: Nothing. Wait for MS-DEFCON 3 or 4.

    If you’re in Group B (Win7/8.1 Security only patches), you’ll have to manually install the July patches prior to installing the August patches. But for almost everybody, you don’t need to lift a finger.
