Computer Security Update

This is the first month in a long time where there has not been a bunch of “Second Tuesday” patches. Whether this is because MS has finally attained security Nirvana or they have stopped patching Pre-XP-SP2 versions remains to be seen.

Firefox 1.0 was released on November 9th. See my review of the pre-release version posted earlier this month. Upgrading is a snap – just install on top of your old version. Trouble-free and highly compatible – the only problem sites that I have encountered so far belong to Microsoft. What a curious coincidence…

Also in the news, AVG 7 Antivirus has a free version. Again, this will install painlessly on top of the free version of V6. Highly recommended if you don’t have antivirus protection.
