Patch Tuesday

Patch Tuesday June 2015: quiet month for security updates. Just what we needed after all the updates last month.

Microsoft News

Only eight patches released today, six of which will affect all versions of Windows and Office. Yes, you will need to restart your computer after installation. Expect network and computer slowdowns while these updates download and install.

Windows 10 Free Upgrade

No, you haven’t been hacked. That Windows icon in the task tray is for for real. You can get Windows 10 as a free upgrade. More details in my Windows 10 blog.


Very quiet month for WordPress after two core updates last month and the corresponding rush of plugin updates. Just some updates for the Akismet spam plugin, Wordfence, Gravity Forms and BackupBuddy.


Big updates coming to all iThingys in the fall. Apple announced the new version of OS X, El Capitan, will be released in the fall and iOS9 arrives then as well. More details here.

Hot Flash

When will Adobe put Flash out of its security misery? Adobe should be embarrassed that Flash shows up on the security update list every month. It’s one little piece of software. You expect complex software like operating systems (Microsoft and Apple) to have problems but one little web dohickey?

Yes, Flash for Windows, Mac and Linux yet again needs security updates this month.

Most businesses get hacked from running out of date software. Patch now.
