Microsoft Updates May 2015

Microsoft “Patch Tuesday” is here again.  Microsoft releases new updates on the second Tuesday of each month.  Looking at the list of updates this month there are none remotely exploitable externally (from outside the VPS) with the default configuration of our VPS.  Nevertheless, there are some important updates to protect against local vulnerabilities including the usual cumulative update for Internet Explorer.

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.
