Notes

Some companies — notably Microsoft — publish much more information about problems, not because their pro­ducts are more prone to problems, but because these companies make more products, or make a stronger effort to fix problems and inform customers.

Some companies don't release security fixes for old but widely used products: e.g. Microsoft doesn't support any version of Windows older than Windows 8.1. Users should upgrade to new­er products, but many new products can't run on old PCs: such PCs will become increasingly vul­nerable as time goes on.

For virus news see the Symantec Security Response Center.

Here are recent security fixes and tools to deal with security fixes:
