Microsoft have released 74 patches today covering IE, Edge, Exchange, Windows and Office. There are 13 rated Critical and 61 are Important. In this release there are no Moderate or Low in severity but this is up over last month’s release of 64 updates, this release will keep you busy.

Prioritize Active Exploits

Two of the updates CVE-2019-0803 and CVE-2019-0859 are “Being Exploited” meaning you should  prioritise them now. Robert Brown, Director of Services for Verismic said, “You should treat these updates with the highest importance because a similar vulnerability this year in Win32k elevation caused some significant global intrusions via malware infections.”

Adobe Updates

Adobe have released 8 updates today, for Reader, Flash, Shockwave, InDesign and Dreamweaver and a few others. The update for Flash is Critical meaning IT Admins should install these updates within the next 30 days.

Some Features Updates are Now Retired

Act now to keep your environment future proofed as updates will automatically uninstall.

Today the Windows 10 feature update version 1709 (and previous) is retired on Home, Pro and Pro for Workstations editions. If you try to deploy any security updates / patches to Windows 10 which are no longer supported, those updates will uninstall the next time the PC restarts. Ask your account manager how Syxsense can help you deploy your Windows 10 Feature Updates.

We have made a few recommendations below which you should prioritize, use Syxsense to organize and deploy Windows, third-party, Mac OS, and Linux updates to keep your environment safe.

March Patch Tuesday: Eliminate the Exploits

By News, Patch Management, Patch TuesdayNo Comments

March Patch Tuesday: Eliminate the Exploits

It's the second Tuesday of March, which means it's time for another round of Patch Tuesday security updates.
[vc_empty_space]
[vc_single_image image=”27589″ img_size=”full”]

Microsoft has released 64 patches today covering IE, Edge, Exchange, Windows and Office. There are 17 rated Critical, 45 rated Important, 1 is rated Moderate and is rated Low in severity—this is much less than last month’s release of over 80 updates, however there are still some surprises in this release to keep you busy.

Prioritize Now: Public Announced and Current Exploits

Four of the updates CVE-2019-0683, CVE-2019-0754, CVE-2019-0757 and CVE-2019-0809 are marked as “Publicly Disclosed” meaning there is an increased risk of attack in the very near future, and two updates CVE-2019-0797 & CVE-2019-0808 are marked as “Being Exploited” meaning you should prioritize them now.

Robert Brown, Director of Services for Verismic said, “You should treat these 6 updates with the highest importance, and you should especially treat CVE-2019-0797 & CVE-2019-0808 as a Zero Day because active exploits means actual attempts on your networks by those who wish to expose your data.”

Adobe Patches Flash, Photoshop and Digital Editions

Adobe has given a slight reprieve to IT managers this month by releasing only 3 updates: one for Flash, Photoshop and Digital Editions. Although these updates carry a Critical severity, they are ranked by Adobe with a Priority of 3 meaning administrators should install these updates at their discretion.

Features Updates Due for Retirement

On April 9, the Windows 10 feature update version 1709 will be due for retirement on Home, Pro and Pro for Workstations editions. If you are still using Enterprise or Education editions, you have another year to plan your upgrade.

Use Syxsense to organize and deploy Windows, third-party, Mac OS and Linux updates to keep your environment safe. Our clients love having control over when and where the scanning and deployment of updates takes place, providing peace of mind to any IT department.
