    Latest Ask Woody (XP SP 3)

    Copied below: Says patch every thing & then don't patch-I'm easily confused, which is it?
    Specifically I have in my auto updates ready to update-KB951847, KB958687, KB890830.
    & how do I get the updates deleted from that window that I will never use?
    Thank you,
    David

    "MS-DEFCON 2: Four security bulletins coming
    Posted by woody on 06 February 2009 - 06:33:50 Windows Patches/Security
    Microsoft just announced that they have four security bulletins coming next Tuesday.

    Yet another Internet Explorer patch is rated "critical" as is the Exchange Server patch (which you probably don't have to worry about). The two "important" bulletins, for SQL Server and Visio, may or may not affect you.

    All in all, it looks like a pretty ho-hum crop this month. Get everything patched up right now, then make sure Automatic Update is turned off. I'm raising us to MS-DEFCON 2: Patch reliability is unclear. Unless you have an immediate, pressing need to install a specific patch, don't do it."

    He means get up-to-date with current released patches but do not install any of the new Microsoft patches due to be released next week unless you specifically need a particular patch.
