Patch, Patchouli, Patch!

| No Comments

If you've been thinking about visiting windowsupdate and getting the newest patches and updates installed, now is a good time to do it. Actually, I hope you already installed the critical patch (MS06-001) for the WMF vulnerablilties which was released last week. Today - patching tuesday - two new patches have appeared on the MS site, one aiming to close a hole in how Microsoft Windows processes embedded web fonts (MS06-002) and one should stitch up a Transport Neutral Encapsulation Format (TNEF) decoding vulnerability (MS06-003). Both vulnerabilities create new means for malicious people to breach security on your system(s), by as simple means as having you visit a website or opening a specially crafted e-mail. This alows mass infection as well as targetting very specific users, systems or organisations. Don't think it won't happen to you, patch now!

I've been in a "get rid of mess" mood today, as I removed all junk from the volvo, and got rid of some crap in the home too. I suppose the new set of wheels are bringing out the best in me, lol.
