Last week in Security News, news ending May 16, 2020

I’ve been neglecting the blog for a little bit, part of that has been my health, but there are two items I’m going to post while I’m thinking about it. The first of course is going to be the news for last week that is compiled by Trend Micro.

The top story is one we’ve covered on the blog in regards to how two researchers were able to make a factory like environment, then commandeer the robots to do whatever they want. Of course, we can’t forget the Microsoft ordeal with the third month with over 100 patches fixed in their roll-up.

Another item that caught my attention is a package delivery service I’ve actually never heard of that got owned and breached. The company is named Pitney Bowes .

Finally, Texas courts did not pay any ransome, after being attacked with ransomware.

Next, we posted two articles in an earlier blog post that talked about Windows Update. On Friday, Trend Micro came out with their post, and it still is worth posting. 16 of these patches are critical while the rest are not “so bad” if you rate important less severe.

May Patch Tuesday: More Fixes for SharePoint, TLS, Runtime, and Graphic Components Released
