Critical Microsoft Patches Available 

The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) published their September 2016 Security Bulletin this week. 

According to the bulletin, "Microsoft has released 14 updates to address vulnerabilities in Microsoft software. Exploitation of one of these vulnerabilities could allow a remote attacker to take control of an affected system."

A recent article in PCWorld points out that this is one of the biggest security updates for Microsoft this year. The 14 security bulletins address fixes for 50 vulnerabilities. 

"Half of the 14 security bulletins released Tuesday cover critical vulnerabilities...
...These vulnerabilities can be exploited to achieve remote code execution by tricking users to visit compromised websites or to open specifically crafted files. These are two of the most common infection vectors used in malware attacks."

The US-CERT (formally the Federal Computer Incident Response Center) was formed in early 2000 by Congress in response cyber breaches experienced by Federal Government networks. Their mission is to "lead efforts to improve the nation's cybersecurity posture, coordinate cyber information and proactively manage cyber risks to the nation while protecting the Constitutional rights of Americans." 

What Options Are Available To You? 

Now that you're aware of these critical updates, do you know if your environment has been updated? 

With a Btech Patch Management Service agreement in place, we will make sure that patches are deployed to all workstations and servers. We also provide our clients with detailed reports on the patch status of all systems.

Frequent Vulnerability Assessments are another important tool available to you. With our Vulnerability Assessment Service, Btech regularly analyzes your environment to discover any new vulnerability, report on it, and provide you with the information on how to correct the vulnerability.

Btech has proven itself a rapid responder to our needs time and again; considering we have no in-house IT for day to day activities, it is clear how important their response times are to our operations. In order to keep up with changes in technology, we have implemented Btech's Mobile Device Management service in order to protect our members' personal information, as well as meet regulatory guidelines.
