Adobe and Apple to Outpace Microsoft in 2017 Vulnerability Discoveries. So What Now?

Several days ago, I read an article entitled Adobe and Apple to Outpace Microsoft in 2017 Vulnerability Discoveries. So What Now?

The question is sitting right here, and that is pretty much now what? I do feel that Windows will still be a large target, and of course people are moving away from Windows and using other operating systems and other technologies. As people do this, the people creating all the malware and viruses will migrate to these platforms and we’ll be still fighting this.

TThe thing we must do is try to keep up with what people are releasing for bug fixes, and of course, remember to do our best to only install things we’re looking for.

Brian Krebs posted something very interested I read as part of his blog roll, and I think we should talk about that. It is his Krebs’s 3 Rules… and it is a great read.

  • Krebs’s Number One Rule for Staying Safe Online: “If you didn’t go looking for it, don’t install it!”
  • Krebs’s Rule #2 for Staying Safe Online: “If you installed it, update it.” Y
  • Krebs’s Rule #3 for Staying Safe Online: “If you no longer need it, remove it.”

All of these are good rules and Brian goes in to detail on each of these and he has links to various things we can use. I can’t vouch for anything here, but if you are blind or visually impaired and have used the tools listed here, please comment on whether they are accessible. If we all play a part, we all can help keep the net a safer place.

Thanks for reading, and stay safe.
