Upgrade to IE11 or Edge No Matter What – Daily Security Byte EP. 202

Last month, I warned you that Microsoft planned to End-of-Life all version of Internet Explorer (IE) after January 12, except version 11. This means they will only release security updates for IE11 and the new Edge browser, so if you use Microsoft browsers you need to upgrade to stay safe. However, in today’s video I tell you why you need to upgrade to IE11 (or Edge) even if you don’t plan on using Microsoft’s browsers.

Whether or not you stick around to watch the video, I highly recommend you at least follow the links below to get the latest Microsoft patches, or let Windows’ auto-update feature apply them for you.

Lookout for Reader Patches – Daily Security Byte EP.80

Adobe typically shares Patch Tuesday with Microsoft, but with Microsoft’s recent announcement to stop monthly patches for Windows 10, Adobe could be patching alone this month. That’s no excuse to miss patches though, so watch today’s video to learn what Adobe  plans to update tomorrow.

By the way, if Microsoft does release patches tomorrow, we’ll be sure to let you know.
