Windows updates for February could set record

There could be a record number of vulnerabilities addressed next week when Microsoft releases an expected dozen updates for its Windows and Office products. (According to Brian Krebs at the Security Fix.) Tuesday February 13th is the date scheduled for the release of updates. One critical udpate will affect Microsoft’s security software (onecare/defender/etc.) 3 patches will affect Office. Most of the updates to be released are rated as critical.


What’s frustrating to me is that the responsiveness of Windows Update has gotten to be so slow on update Tuesday that many systems I find I HAVE to postpone for a day or two so I can get them quickly installed. I’m wondering if anyone else has noticed the slow down on patch Tuesday.

If course, it’s important for the security of your systems to keep as up to date as possible on security patches for the operating system and any and all software that’s used. (Even drivers have security updates.)
