Microsoft Patch Tuesday April 2015

Microsoft “Patch Tuesday” is upon us again.  Microsoft releases new updates on the second Tuesday of each month.  Looking at the list of updates this month there is one remotely exploitable update (MS15-034) but it is not applicable to our VPS unless you have personally installed Internet Information Server (IIS).  We do not install IIS to our VPS by default.

Still, you should update your VPS at your next opportunity and especially if you use Internet Explorer browser as there is the usual cumulative update for Internet Explorer this month.

You can update your VPS by going to “Control Panel > Windows Update”.   We recommend updating over weekends and rebooting after.

The SANS Internet Storm Center (ISC) has the best quick overview of the updates each month.
