The Importance of Windows Updates

We understand the annoyance of that infamous pop-up, “Updates are available”. Who has time for that? Not us! But in the current climate of chronic cyber security attacks, leading to expensive ransom requests and company hardship, we encourage you to reframe that mindset.

Last week, we shared an article regarding Office and Windows HTML Remote Code Execution Vulnerabilities that resulted in targeted attacks (Storm-0978) that attempted to exploit these vulnerabilities by using specially-crafted Microsoft Office documents.

90% of data breaches are human errors

Keeping your Windows 10 / 11 operating system updated is as important as having good updated antivirus. This is because Windows Operating is made up of 50 million lines of code that was developed over the last 25+ years and it works with thousands of different computer components made by many manufacturers that all work together to construct a Personal Computer.

Vulnerabilities or flaws that the coders did not anticipate are discovered and Microsoft has coded a fix or patch to eliminate the vulnerability. This fix has to be tested and then quickly released as an update. Microsoft has to work quickly because hackers are working on ways to use the known vulnerability to gain access to your computer network. It is a constant cat-and-mouse game that is a billion-dollar business for both Microsoft and the hackers who want your cheese, so to speak.

If you don’t keep your system updated regularly, you allow the hackers more time to exploit the vulnerability on your computer. By partnering with Altek, we manage the update process on all your computers, guaranteeing up-to-date systems and significantly reducing the risk of intrusion.
