Hey friends! It’s that time again. As the second week of every month rolls around, IT admins around the world get ready for the endless patching cycle… or at least that’s what I hope you do to avoid succumbing to old vulnerabilities. As always, this Tuesday was Microsoft and Adobe Patch Day. Microsoft released a bunch of updates for all current versions of Windows (and other popular software), including some that fix an old zero day issue that Russian attackers were exploiting in the wild. Meanwhile, Adobe had a light patch day, only fixing some of their lesser used programs. In either case, watch the video below for a few more details, and don’t forget to go get those patches as soon as possible.
