This Week in Patching – 11/2/2012

By: Jason Miller, Manager, Research and Development

It is that time of the week for a recap of the happenings in patch management for the week.

The highlight of the week was a post late on Friday, October 26 by Mozilla.  Mozilla released updates for all of their products.  Mozilla Firefox 16.0.2, Mozilla Firefox 10.0.10 ESR, Mozilla Thunderbird 16.0.2, Mozilla Thunderbird 10.0.10 ESR and Mozilla SeaMonkey 2.13.2 address multiple vulnerabilities.

On Wednesday we got a bit of a treat for Halloween this year with Google updating Google Earth.  Google Earth 7.0.1.8244 is a non-security update introducing new features.  This release has been a long time coming as Google’s previous release of Google Earth was back in January 2012.

On Thursday, The Document Foundation released another update to their experimental branch with LibreOffice 3.6.3.  This update is a non-security update offering new features and bug fixes.

Next week we will be looking forward to Microsoft November 2012 Security Bulletin Advance Notification.  I will be going over this notification then.

Happy Patching!
