This Week in Patching – 1/25/2013

By: Jason Miller, Manager of Research and Development at VMware

After an eventful past couple of weeks in patch management, this week was relatively quiet.  Here is a quick recap in the happenings of patch management this week.

On Monday, a new version of Audacity was released.  Audacity 2.0.3 is a non-security update fixing numerous issues.

On Tuesday, Google released new security updates for their Chrome and Chrome Frame browsers.  Google Chrome / Chrome Frame version 24.0.1312.56 fixes three high, and two medium vulnerabilities.

On Wednesday, Core FTP released a new version with version 2.2.  This version was originally released on January 17th, but the details were provided on Wednesday.  This new version is a non-security update.

Last up for this week are new versions of MozyHome and MozyPro released today.  MozyHome and MozyPro version 2.18.3.247 are both non-security updates.

Happy Patching!

This Week in Patching – 1/14/2013

By: Jason Miller, Manager of Research and Development at VMware

Happy New Year.  I hope IT administrators got some much needed patching rest over the past couple of weeks.  2013 is started out quite heavy in the world of patching.

This week was highlighted by a busy Patch Tuesday.  You can read my write up on the January 2013 edition of Patch Tuesday here.

There were also other vendors releasing critical security bulletins on Patch Tuesday.  Adobe released two security bulletins.  APSB13-02 was pre-announced last Thursday as a part of their quarterly update for Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader.  Adobe Acrobat / Reader versions 9.5.3 / 10.1.5 / 11.0.1 address 27 vulnerabilities and are rate Critical.  Adobe security bulletin APSB13-01 was not pre-announced by Adobe, but I expected this bulletin to be released after Microsoft announced an update for Adobe Flash Player in Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 last Thursday was set to be released on Patch Tuesday.  APSB13-01 addresses 1 vulnerability in Adobe Flash Player versions 10 and 11 (as well as Adobe Air 3.5).

Mozilla also released security updates to coincide with Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday.  The most notable of the releases by Mozilla was the major update for Firefox.  Mozilla Firefox 18 contains new features as well as security updates.  For those organizations that do not want to roll out new features in their Mozilla products due to concerns of the new features breaking functionality, Mozilla is continuing their effort with the Mozilla ESR products.  These product updates contain new security fixes but do not contain new features.

Here is the details list of Mozilla updates released on Patch Tuesday:

  • Mozilla Firefox 18
    • Security update addressing 12 Critical, 8 High and 1 Moderate Mozilla Security Advisories (30 vulnerabilities)
  • Mozilla SeaMonkey 2.15
    • Security update addressing 12 Critical, 7 High and 1 Moderate Mozilla Security Advisories (26 vulnerabilities)

The other notable updates this week were released on Thursday.  Google updated their Chrome and Chrome Frame browser with version 24.0.1312.52.  This new version fixes 24 vulnerabilities and includes an updated version of Adobe Flash Player that was released by Adobe on Patch Tuesday.  In the past year, Google has been in sync with Adobe on Adobe Flash Player releases.  Interestingly, Google’s release came two days after the Adobe Flash Player release.

There were also some non-security updates released on Thursday.  MozyHome and MozyPro updated their programs with version 2.18.2.244.  Microsoft released a new version of Skype with 6.1.0.129.  This version now integrates with Microsoft Office Outlook contact.

Happy Patching!

This Week in Patching – 11/16/2012

By: Jason Miller, Manager, Research and Development

This week in patching was highlighted by Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday.  Microsoft released six new security bulletins addressing 13 vulnerabilities.  I have a full write up on Patch Tuesday here.

On the non-Microsoft front, I did not see any security updates released.  However, there were a few non-security updates released that you may want to get installed to fix various issues.

On Monday, two vendors released updates for their programs to fix crashing issues.  Notepad++ 6.2.1  and Filezilla 3.6.0 are non-security updates fixing crash issues.

On Tuesday, an update for AT&T Global Network Client was released with version 9.1.0.  The release notes have not been updated yet.  Without a published update, I am under the assumption at this point that the release is a non-security update.

VMware also released updates for MozyHome and MozyPro with version 2.18.0.227.  These updates are non-security updates fixing numerous issues and introducing new features.

On Thursday, Microsoft released a new version of Skype with version 6.0.0.126.  The highlight of this non-security update is a fix that addresses issues when upgrading to the latest version of Skype.

Due to the holiday week next week, I will not have a weekly write up for the week in patching next Friday.  I will provide an update in patching for the holiday week the following Monday.

Happy Patching!
