Keep Your Home Computer Updated

Updated: Apr 20, 2020

I am following up on earlier posts to keep your systems secure, especially with so many people working from home. Microsoft released on Tuesday updates to fix 113 security vulnerabilities in its various Windows operating systems and related software. Those include at least three flaws that are actively being exploited, as well as two others which were publicly detailed prior to today, potentially giving attackers a head start in figuring out how to exploit the bugs.

If you're not sure if you need to upgrade, on Windows 10 click on the Windows icon bottom left. The menu will open and at bottom left there's a "power" icon. Click on that, and you should see three options:

  • Sleep

  • Update and shut down

  • Update and restart

If you are already up to date, you won't need to do anything and you won't see "Update" in the menu options. Otherwise click on "Update and restart" as soon as you can. - John Stanley #COVID #EventFalcon #cyberrisks #Dataprotection #Privacy #cyberprotection
