Microsoft Updates July 2016

Microsoft released new Windows updates two days ago. 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. However, there are web browser vulnerabilities for Internet Explorer which could be remotely exploited if you visited a website with malicious code and were not updated yet. We advise minimizing your web browsing from your VPS for added security. Nevertheless, there are some important updates to also protect against local vulnerabilities including the usual cumulative update for Internet Explorer and Edge web browsers.

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

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