  • Master Patch List for June 14, 2022 too early to patch… yet

    I’ve updated the Master Patch List tonight for today’s releases.

    Key items to keep in mind – you’ll see .NET patches listed but they are not security updates. As I see issues and side effects I’ll be updating the Master Patch List page to accumulate the issues.

    … so far in my early testing I’m not seeing issues but it’s early and we normally don’t start seeing trending issues until tomorrow.

    As always, thank you all for supporting the cause! Remember a mere $1 donation will give you access and if you donate $50 or more you’ll get a special code to enable text messages sent to your phone each time the Master Patch List gets updated and when I change the MS-DEFCON level.

  • June updates are out

    Where I live it’s stone fruit season – Peaches and plums are sweet and ripe.

    Where we ALL live around the world, it’s that time of the month where Redmond releases Windows updates. Even if you don’t use Windows anymore it’s the day I always review browsers on all of my devices to ensure they are up to date.

    And here we go… https://patchtuesdaydashboard.com/

    Remember today is not the day to be installing updates unless you are one of those kind people that LIKE to be our beta testers and have a backup. The rest of us have deferrals in place.  I’ll be updating this post during the day with early trends, and keep an eye on the Master Patch list that I will update at the end of the date and consistently after that with info.  The full report will come out in next Monday’s newsletter.

    60 vulnerabilities

    3 critical

    0 under active attack.

    Unsure if the zero day has been fixed, hang loose.

    Zero day Follina and Dogpatch has been fixed, if you used the group policy workaround you can decide if you want to leave it or not, I would leave the Attack surface reduction rules in place.  If you are using 0Patch it will leave resident memory once you’ve installed the update. Dogpatch has not bee fixed, but I honestly don’t see as much concern on that one – more about this in the newsletter.

    IE drops out of support BUT not removed from your computer. More on this in the newsletter.

    SQL server has security updates – haven’t seen that in a long time https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=Security+Update+for+SQL+Server
