• MS-DEFCON 4: It’s time to get patched

    The moment you’ve all been waiting for…

    It looks like the October Windows patches are ready for prime time. The usual caveats — and there are many — apply. We also have special warnings for people running Win10 1903 with certain RealTek LAN adapters, and for folks who need to run older VisualBasic programs on 32-bit version 1903.

    There’s no rush this month, by the way. Nothing in the patches screams for installation. But in the normal course of events you want to get patched. We’ve entered the normal course of events.

    Full step-by-step updating details for everybody, from Win7 to Win10 1903, are in Computerworld Woody on Windows.
