Keep Windows and all your software up to date

Security vendor Kaspersky recently released a report that listed the top 10 vulnerabilities it detected on its computers. There were no Microsoft products on the list.

Read the report to see which products were affected

Some security experts suspect that the decrease in vulnerabilities comes as more systems utilize the automatic updating feature in Windows. In the newest versions of Windows, automatic updating is turned on during installation.

The Kaspersky data also serves as a reminder to update all your software, not just your Microsoft software. Computerworld reports that Adobe will start releasing its Flash Player updates on the second Tuesday of each month, which aligns with Microsoft security updates.
