Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren ,
ich habe von diesen Angriffen gehört, aber ich habe keine Ahnung ob ich selbst betroffen bin. Macht Heimdal dieses Patching automatisch bei Privatnutzer ?
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
I have cyber security with ESET and I think if I install your security system it will clash.
Also I have received notification to upgrade from Microsoft – will that contain these patches and should I go ahead with them?
Hi Mary, thank you for the comment. It will not clash, that’s one of the strengths of our product suite, that it’s cross-compatible.
The patches from Microsoft are safe to install and you should do it, of course, as soon as you can, as they contain fixes for these critical vulnerabilities discovered.
By having a security product such as Heimdal Patch and Asset Management you would make sure that these patches are automatically deployed on all your devices as soon as they are released, so you wouldn’t wait anymore and leave attackers a window of opportunity.
