Patch Tuesday

Yes, it’s “Patch Tuesday” again – Microsoft releases a swathe of new patches and updates for Windows and Office.

Of note this month – Installing Windows XP SP2 is now essential. You can’t not do it any more, so a lot of people who haven’t yet upgraded should be doing so today. Rumour has it that there’s also 8 security updates including Windows, MSN Messenger, Office and Exchange

If you’ve not gone to Windows Update (and Office Update if you use MS Office) then it’s time to get your patches up to date.

While you’re at it, check for updates to your anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall too (what do you mean you don’t have those?)
