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”.
