Microsoft Patch Tuesday for October 2016

Although some may say ― “Wow Microsoft, that’s a lot of security issues. What’s wrong with your software!”, I have a different perspective. All software has bugs including security exploits. No exception. I personally appreciate both the transparency and investment Microsoft has put into its robust security research, update, communication and of course updates. It really does make the world a better place when you consider the billions of users who are running Microsoft products.

So, for these latest updates, the best way to get them if you’re reading this from a business machine is to remind your local IT admins to please approve all these updates on their patching system (AKA WSUS, SCCM or GFI etc…). If you’re a home user, good news is Windows Updates has probably already downloaded the patches and applied them. If you want to check, feel free to update manually by Clicking Start Menu > Settings > Update and Security. If updates are available, you will be prompted to install them.

Finally, if you are still experiencing issues upgrading to Windows 10 or the Anniversary Update; Microsoft released a comprehensive and handy piece of documentation with details for troubleshooting upgrade errors .
