Unpatched Software? The Hacker’s In? (Note: Your Phone Included).
If you’re wondering why we place so much emphasis on patching software, it’s because hackers love security holes in software – that’s how they get in. The good news is, 86% of software holes have a fix within a day (24hrs.) If people kept their patches up to date, many of the news reports you read about would have never happened. People don’t realize it, but software contains millions of lines of code – with potential security holes occurring throughout. Coding errors lead to vulnerabilities, which lead to lost and stolen data…Don’t let your systems go without regular patching/updates – especially on those devices you personally maintain such as you smartphone and home computer.
