June, 2015: Patch Monday: Adobe and Chrome

Welcome to this June Patch Monday bulletin. This is a relatively light month for patching and there do not appear be active attacks against any of the software in the bulletin this month. Start this month with Adobe Flash and Air due to a large number of vulnerabilities that are patched and could allow arbitrary code execution. Google Chrome has updated the browser to include an updated version of Flash so apply this patch if Chrome is in the environment. Adobe has also released patches for Photoshop and Bridge. Exploiting this software could lead to arbitrary code execution so it is important to be aware of this software in your environment and patch accordingly. This is a great month to examine the patch management program to find out how to deliver patches more efficiently.

One of the most frequent complaints I hear from you folks is “We need a SIEM but can't afford the big enterprise solutions.” And as a tech-heavy small business owner I truly understand the need for software that installs in minutes and doesn't require a ton of planning, learning, design and professional services before you start getting results. So I recently reviewed a fast, easy and affordable SIEM and Log Management solution that I think deserves your attention. Read the blog about it here.
