February Patch Tuesday
14 February 2018
Are you feeling like you'd like to have poked your fingers into the center of the Meltdown and Spectre patches like a box of Valentine's chocolates? There were some unsavory surprises for sure. Fortunately, the kinks are largely worked out and February Patch Tuesday is more straightforward. If there is one word for this month in patching, it's not "love" or "romance" but "privilege." Patch the elevation-of-privilege vulnerabilities, and then take a closer look at your policy on privilege management. Make sure you're keeping attackers from storming the heart of your organization.
