You Need to Make Sure You do This…
Are You Updating All of Your Applications and Software?
Every morning, thousands of hackers get up in the morning with the sole purpose of looking for a vulnerability in a common software so they can access your computer.
Software companies frequently issue patches and updates to fix security bugs. Once the vulnerability has been announced and an update sent out, the hackers look for the lazy people who have yet to install the update and use the vulnerability to their advantage. That’s why it’s critical to update installed software programs like Adobe, QuickTime and Flash as soon as the update comes out. This is also the case for your smartphone. When Apple or Android pushes out a new update, it’s most likely because there are issues that need to be fixed. If you’re a client of ours, then we monitor your network for these patches and updates. However, your personal devices like your laptop and smartphone may not be under our protection and will need a little attention from you.
