  • MS-DEFCON 2: Keep the May 2019 patches off your machine for now

    Posted on May 13th, 2019 at 07:43 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Tomorrow’s Patch Tuesday and, if it’s like other Patch Tuesdays for the past year or two, it’ll be accompanied by howls of pain.

    Don’t be an unpaid beta tester. Get Windows Update locked down.

    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.

    Full details in Computerworld.
