Upgrade to IE11 or Edge No Matter What – Daily Security Byte EP. 202

Last month, I warned you that Microsoft planned to End-of-Life all version of Internet Explorer (IE) after January 12, except version 11. This means they will only release security updates for IE11 and the new Edge browser, so if you use Microsoft browsers you need to upgrade to stay safe. However, in today’s video I tell you why you need to upgrade to IE11 (or Edge) even if you don’t plan on using Microsoft’s browsers.

No Security for Old IE – Daily Security Byte EP. 187

Internet Explorer (IE) has been around for ages, but Microsoft is ending support for older version of the popular browser on January 12, 2016, likely to focus on their new Edge browser. They’ll only support the latest version of IE in each of their supported operating systems, which basically means most people will have to use IE 11 or Edge. Watch today’s video to learn about the security implications of this change.

This Patch Tuesday, Adobe and Oracle shared the spotlight with Microsoft, releasing updates for well over 200 vulnerabilities. Furthermore, the patches included fixes for flaws leaked during The Hacking Team fiasco. Watch today’s video for details, and be sure to update as soon as you can.
