Do You Use Microsoft’s Windows Update?
Microsoft has again released patches to help guarantee your computer’s security. Altough some may complain about the constant upgrades, I find it comforting that Microsoft is continually offering patches to help maintain the integrity of my computers and personal files.
One of the new patches is supposed to resolve issues surrounding the HTML Help ActiveX control in Windows. Microsoft listened to security experts and addressed this problem.
The second patch address a “Vulnerability in Cursor and Icon Format Handling Could Allow Remote Code Execution”. This has a critical rating and MS customers should apply the update immediately.
The third patch, although not critical, deals with a “Vulnerability in the Indexing Service Could Allow Remote Code Execution”. Although you do not need to patch this flaw, you are advised to consider applying the security update.
I think the best way to handle security is to have windows do an AUTOMATIC UPDATE…then you know you are protected with the latest…and of course, have a good anti-virus program!
