  • MS-DEFCON 4: A Month Of Tough Fixes

    ISSUE 19/04 – 25-01-2022

    Thanks to Microsoft for a very chaotic January.

    This pretty good period will now be a bit problematic for fixes, mainly due to the large amount of detail effects. Worse, but also more difficult, Microsoft left it up to us to decide what to install, not which patched updates to push through Update or WSUS. The side effects for those with servers can be extreme. In some cases, you need to install two updates before the updates reboot the servers, which you can fix this particular month.

    Despite these difficulties, I am downgrading MS-DEFCON from 4 to 4, but professional users should be extremely careful.

We have been promised that the human hardware and software we buy will most likely deliver on security promises. We really deserve it – period.

It is actually an extended clone of the original DOS program called “Tornado”, which later became “Info-Select” (for DOS) and then “Info-Select” (for Windows). Johanan renamed it “Infobase” and added tens of millions of features.
