  • Tasks for the weekend – July 31st – what to do?

    (Youtube here)

    This week I’m revisiting two discussions that have been going on regarding actions to be taken on two bugs that are not yet patched.

    First is the permission bug.

    The second is the print spooler bugs.

    I will separate my recommendations into two camps: Home and Business.

    For Home I honestly don’t think you should take any action at this time because I do not see active attacks against home users for either the Print Spooler bugs or the incorrect permission bug. Both of them are more suited for attackers going after businesses, so once again, I’ll urge you to be aware, don’t click where you shouldn’t, but not to take any actions at this time.

    For businesses I see that you need to be evaluating and if you feel that the risk is large enough to then take actions that I discuss in the video.

    Take a look at the video.
