  • Patch Lady – just a kind reminder about Office 2010

    Posted on September 13th, 2020 at 00:36 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    In the consumer patching survey, quite a few of you indicated that you still were running Office 2010.  Just a kind reminder that as of October of 2020 that platform will no longer receive security updates.  Given HOW MUCH malware, phishing and what not is coming through email, given HOW MUCH malware, phishing and what not are using macros to enter systems, given HOW MANY times Office is being patched for remote code execution attacks that you will no longer be protected for after October 13, 2020, just a kind reminder to take the time to review your options.

    Many of you do not like subscription versions of Office.  I’d be reviewing alternative platforms such as LibreOffice.  Bottom line you have one month and the final updates for Office 2010 will be released.
