There are (as of now) 51 patches to the Windows ecosystem for February, but no critical updates and no “Patch Now” recommendations from the Readiness team. I’m hoping that with this month’s list of Patch Tuesday updates, we can enjoy the quiet after the storm. January was tough for a lot of folks. And, with this month’s very light release from Microsoft, corporate security and systems administrators can take the time needed to test their applications and desktop/server builds. It’s also important to invest in their testing methodologies, release practices, and how their applications may be affected by OS-level updates and patches.
