August Patch Tuesday - Wow, a busy time for the deployment team

Within the next 24 hours we'll get to see the latest security patch updates from Microsoft.

Those who find these Microsoft Security Update notifications of use will already know that this month, August,  is going to be a big one.  Looking at the list of 14  security patches being released tomorrow will mean alot of comapnies are going to have alot of work to do to ensure they maintain their stringent level levels of security to avoid opening up the gate of vulnerability. what's interesting to me is the fact that 8 out of the 14 patches are ranked as critical.

This further highlights the need for companies to be extra vigilent during the holiday session.Once again this is an area which organisations can't avoid to be complacent. With 8 critical patches being released it will be all hands to the pump  on Wednesday. I on the other hand will be off on my holidays but the ChangeBASE AOK Patch report will be out as usual.
