  • Patch Lady: Preparing for Microsoft’s patch-security changes

    Posted on April 8th, 2019 at 03:44 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Are you running Windows 7 or Server 2008? There are some important updates coming down the pike, and you need to install them if you want to keep getting security patches.

    Patch Lady Susan Bradley takes you through the why’s and wherefore’s of the massive change from SHA-1 to SHA-2, and why it’s important for all Win7 and Server 2008 machines (and WSUS 3.0 update servers).

    Details in this week’s AskWoody Plus Newsletter 16.13.0, out this morning to AskWoody Plus Members.
