  • MS-DEFCON 3: Time to get the August 2019 patches installed

    Posted on September 6th, 2019 at 07:34 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Lingering bugs await the unwary. Make sure you understand them before you take the August patching leap.

    Details in Computerworld Woody on Windows.

    For those of you new to the MS-DEFCON system… every month I send out warnings to block updates, and then an all-clear (possibly with assorted caveats) when things appear safe. We just hit the “sorta safe” mark, and we’ll descend back to the “block updates” part on Monday. Details on how to handle both transitions appear in Computerworld.
