Why should keep your security patches updated
As some of you may know, keeping your software up to date makes your system more secure. You may notice that Microsoft, Adobe and many others are regularly prompting you to install the new version of their program due to security vulnerability concerns. Many of these are what are known as ‘Security Patches.’
Simply put, a ‘security patch’ is like a ‘fix’ to mend a program. It is like having a hole or a gap in a fence. If there is a loose bit of wire in the fence the fox will get in. So, in our case, if the program doesn’t get fixed, it could allow a hacker to get in.
