Patching Time Again

Tomorrow should already be on your -- or one of your minions' -- schedule, so you won't forget to patch your Windows and client PCs. Luckily, this month is pretty light with a scant four patches.

Microsoft Word tops the list with a remote execution exploit just begging to be fixed. Publisher also gets a plug (write me at dbarney@redmondmag.com if you're one of the few that actually use this program). Lastly, the Jet Database Engine gets one of its flaws un-flawed.

How does your shop patch? Manually? A patch management tool? A combo? Any advice for would-be patchers? Write me at dbarney@redmondmag.com and I'll pass it along.
