Virus outbreaks and why it’s important to regularly patch your system.


June 7, 2019

The digital realm is continuously evolving, and with advancements come vulnerabilities. The Australian Cyber Security Centre has recently sounded the alarm for all Windows users in Australia: Ensure your systems are patched, or you could be at the epicentre of the next big virus outbreak.

Microsoft has recently uncovered a concerning loophole in the pre-authentication of RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). If this sounds eerily familiar, that’s because it is. Recall the devastation caused by the WannaCry malware; a similar calamity could be on the horizon if systems remain outdated and unpatched.

Why Regular Patching is Non-Negotiable

  1. Prevent Vulnerabilities: Just as vaccines protect against diseases, patches shield systems from known threats.
  2. Maintain Functionality: Regular updates ensure your software runs smoothly, and its features remain in sync with current tech standards.
  3. Save Time and Money: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Addressing issues after a breach can be costly and time-consuming.
