A Dozen Microsoft Updates – Daily Security Byte EP. 174

If you use Microsoft or Adobe productsas the majority of computer users do—it’s that time again… Patch Day.

For November’s Patch Day, Microsoft released a dozen bulletins fixing many flaws in their most popular products. Watch today’s video for the quick highlights about these and Adobe’s updates.

UPDATE: As gung-ho as I am about applying patches quickly, there have been reports that some of the Windows 10 updates can cause problems. You may want to test these updates before deploying them throughout your network.
