It was patch day again this week

Every second Tuesday in a month is “Patch Day”. This is the day Microsoft and other large software providers publish patches to correct mistakes and update security.

It is common knowledge that updates keep arriving at inconvenient times. And it is usually when you are in a hurry to get something done when the system is busy installing updates.

This day, known as “Patchday” or “Update Tuesday”, was first introduced by Microsoft in October 2013 to resolve this problem. Ever since, both administrators and private users can expect to receive updates every second week in a month and thus plan accordingly. This practice has gone down well, and was therefore quickly introduced by other software providers, too.

You should schedule any activities requiring urgent and swift work outside of the second week of a month, which should considerably decrease the occasions you find yourself confronted with problematically inconvenient updates.

We would like to take this opportunity to ask you to make absolutely sure to install these recent updates as soon as you can! Amongst others, they will remove some vulnerabilities classified “important”.
