Microsoft Security Bulletins For July 2015 - gHacks Tech News
July 2015 Patch Tuesday: Microsoft and Adobe attack Hacking Team zero-days
Meanwhile, how many people fall for these kinds of brain hacks?
My IE crashed at least 2+ years ago, and I haven't been able to update my Java or Adobe properly ever since. A security bulletin saying
MS15-077 is a patch for a vulnerability in the Adobe Type Manager Font Driver, which affects Windows Server 2003, Server 2008, Server 2012, Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8, 8.1, RT and RT 8.1. The Hacking Team detailed a proof-of-concept exploit using this vulnerability which Microsoft said would allow an attacker to install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.
only makes me laugh because I immediately think Oooohhhh, THAT'S why I keep discovering I have accounts like Conferize popping up saying "Claim your account". *cough*yeah, that's real scary*cough* I've claimed a number of spontaneous accounts last couple of years. Lappy is too crippled to update half the crap that comes in without wiping the hard drive first. Even setting back to default would be a mess because I'd lose a lot of stuff. Guess I'll keep discovering new accounts with my name on them.
I assume the problem with this is that automated account creations use our personal info to chain link ads into and then throw them into a crowd of other automated account creations, and basically bots are sitting in for me so I don't have to do all the work. I wonder if that's why there are so many fake twitter accounts, people neglect to update their software.
It's a 3 patch problem.
