  • MS-DEFCON 2: Time to make sure you are pausing Patches

    Posted on February 8th, 2021 at 19:47 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    It’s that time again. Tomorrow is Patch Tuesday (*) and it’s time to pause updates.

    There’s no reason to rush out updates this week.  Make sure your computer is set to pause updates or have set a date for deferred installs. If you are unsure how to do a deferral I have a post and a video with instructions. Also make sure you have a backup. I’ll be posting up a video how to next weekend.

    I’ve been warned that there is a zero day to be patched in tomorrow’s updates, but that’s all the information I have at this time. As always, visit us here and we’ll keep you informed.

    (*) Yes I realize that for some of you it’s Patch Wednesday but the ‘slang’ for the day when patches come out normally ties it to the Redmond time zone.  Patches normally start getting published around 10 to 11 a.m pacific time.
