  • It’s time to pause

    Posted on November 9th, 2020 at 11:16 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Patches that is.  You know the drill by now, it’s time to make sure your computer is set to pause patches and not get them installed tomorrow.  We do have a targeted Windows zero day that got “outted” by Google the other day which has already been patched in Chrome and (New) Edge, but not yet in Windows.  The windows part of the zero day will be patched tomorrow.

    I always recommend that you be on Pro and not Home and discuss this in the Computerworld article.

    We’re at Defcon2 – and as soon as I get logged into the right console to change the image at the top of AskWoody it will show that up there as well.  I’m embarrassingly checking my notes and apparently forgot to write down an important step.  I’m going to have to bother Woody during his retirement for help already!

    Aw gee thanks Woody! (he logged in and fixed it already)
