Patch Analysis for June 2021

Welcome to this June Patch Monday Bulletin. This month there are updates from Adobe, Google, and Mozilla. Adobe had a huge month with updates to 10 products, but none were a priority 1. The most severe bugs were fixed on Adobe Acrobat/Reader rated at Critical Priority 2. Adobe Experience Manager was also rated a Priority 2 update so make sure these two products are at the top of the priority list this month. Google Chrome updated 2 vulnerabilities that were being actively exploited in the wild this month. Chrome should auto update to take care of this issue, but users will likely have to restart the browser. Firefox and Thunderbird were both updated remediating several updates. Update these applications after testing in your environment.

Over the years we've had millions of visitors to UltimateWindowsSecurity.com. Every month we have thousands and thousands of visitors to our Security Log Encyclopedia which documents all of the Security Log event ID’s for Windows Server OS’s. Back in 2007 when SharePoint added auditing capability, I realized that my audience not only needed the event information from SharePoint but I also found a similar need in SQL Server and Exchange. So not only did I document the data but I also started to develop the means to extract that event data from these applications so that it’s accessible and useable to the end user. Some 8 years later and LOGbinder is continuing to grow as companies realize LOGbinder bridges the gap between these applications and their infosec team. Visit LOGbinder.com to download a free 30-day fully functional trial and see the security event data that you have literally been missing.

So, without further ado, here’s the chart of non-MS patches this month.
