IT Security Tip: If you install it, you must update it!


There are thousands of hackers who get up every morning with ONE goal in mind: to find a new vulnerability in commonly installed software (like Adobe, Flash or QuickTime) to access your computer.

That’s why these companies frequently issue patches and updates for KNOWN security bugs; and once a KNOWN vulnerability is announced via a patch, hackers get to work like crazy trying to figure out how to use the vulnerability and access those users who are negligent about installing updates. That’s why it’s important to update installed software programs as soon as possible.
