Patch Tuesday is coming despite the COVID-19 threat

Probably the biggest change in our lives in recent history, the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting pretty much everything and everyone.

However, despite the changes and the fact that most Microsoft staff were required to work from home, the Patch Tuesday schedule doesn’t seem to be affected.

More so, security threats are on the rise due to everyone being at home and using their PCs more intensively.

One good example is how this round of Patch Tuesday updates brought fixes to 118 different CVEs, 113 of which were Microsoft-related, and 5 of which were Adobe-related.

It is important that you always have a backup of all of your data before performing a big set of updates like the ones on Patch Tuesday.
